LENTEN REFLECTIONS

“We typically “give up” something for Lent – candy, desert, television… or we “do” something for Lent – pray more often, go to church more often. Such things are good, but they don’t necessarily cleanse our hearts and souls. Perhaps, we should consider giving up unkind acts and words. Perhaps we should do more kind deeds for others less fortunate than we…” Nance Dicciani, Board of Trustees, Villanova University

Be sure to visit Office of Mission and Ministry’s website each day during Lent for personal reflections written by the University community.
