Time to repent, change

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, March 06, 2014

ABOUT 200 faithful Catholics of the Holy Family Parish in Labasa marked the Catholic celebration of Ash Wednesday yesterday.

Catholics attended mass and had ash placed on their foreheads to remind them of their destiny and the call for repentance.

At yesterday's mass, Father Francis Ko Latt reminded the parishioners that people were made from dust and that one day they shall return to it.

"Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten season. It is a time when Christians are called to a deeper renewal of their life through prayer and fasting," he said.

Fr Francis encouraged them to know the true meaning and importance of the ashen cross placed on their foreheads. He also informed the congregation that this was a period of repentance and a time to make a positive change.

The period ends on Easter Sunday.
