On Wednesday, April 1st at 6:30 pm our church has Lenten Parish Penance Service. It is a great opportunity that Church extends to us in order for us to examine the state of our souls as we prepare to celebrate Easter. Just like it is a good health practice to get your physical check-up at least once a year, even if you are feeling healthy, Church calls to check our souls as we prepare to Easter. Take this time to attend this service and to look closely at ourselves and to answer these questions:
Where is God in our lives? Is He in the first place or on the outskirts?
Do people around us see that we are Christians through our behavior?
How are our relationships? Is God involved in our work life, social life, family life?
If you want to better prepare for the sacrament of penance, use the examinations of conscience provided by the US conference of Bishops here , or use examination of conscience based on Beatitudes here.
