Lent asks Catholics to pray, to fast and to give

February 23, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Wednesday marked the beginning of the Lenten season for Roman Catholics around the world.

For the next six weeks, Msgr. Joseph Riccardo, of the Ss. Cosmas & Damian parish, is asking his parishioners and all Catholics to remove the growing number of distractions that usually inhibit a person of faith from making a full commitment to the Lenten season.

“It’s a hectic world, and we’re distracted by many things,” he said. “We have a lot of responsibilities and commitments, and unfortunately, that also serves as a distraction to the practice of our faith.”
