closely to God and each other.

are actually more important because they represent deliverance from
eternal punishment and the granting of eternal life in Heaven for the believer.

are prepared to begin to appreciate what happens next.

spring days, so, too, fasting, almsgiving, and prayer are necessary
ingredients to nurture our spiritual growth on our Lenten journey to Easter.
