The blog of the Dominican student brothers at Blackfriars, Oxford.

Lent 2010As in previous years, we invite Godzdogz readers to join us during Lent for prayer and reflection, and we hope that you'll invite your friends, family and communities also as we make this Lenten journey together.

The Lenten Retreat begins on Ash Wednesday (17 February) and will continue each day until Easter Sunday (4 April). The Dominican students will offer a short reflection on the Mass readings for each day, and slightly longer reflections for the Sundays and Feasts of Lent. We'll also be introducing a new feature on those days, and will announce the details shortly.

The Welsh poet, George Herbert (1593 - 1633) gives us food for thought as we begin our Lenten fast, and by God's grace, may what we offer here on Godzdogz feed and water our souls:

Yet Lord instruct us to improve our fast
By starving sin and taking such repast,
As may our faults control:
That ev'ry man may revel at his door,
Not in his parlour; banqueting the poor,
And among those his soul.

Lawrence Lew OP
