Each year the Church gives us a wonderful opportunity to renew our first-love and to grow in Grace and holiness. Traditionally a time of preparation for baptism at Easter, the forty days have become a practice for all Catholics to pull themselves back from habits and routines we fall into all-so-easily.
We are on familiar territory, because the first lockdown happened half way through Lent last year. Now we are used to it, so it can be an opportunity, rater than a trial.
