What Does Lent Mean to Me?

March 15, 2017 — During Lent, Jesuit Father John Cecero, provincial of the USA Northeast Province Jesuits, says he tries to spend a little extra time in prayer.

“Ignatius gives us the tool of the Examen to look back with gratitude over what’s happening in life," he says, “but also to focus on perhaps another area where I’m hoping to get some freedom in my life.”

Lent is a time to grow spiritually, says Fr. Cecero. And, from an Ignatian perspective, “a time to grow in freedom.”
