Archbishop reminds Catholic faithful of their Lenten obligations

CATHOLICS in Cebu are expected to flock to churches today as Lent begins with the observation of Ash Wednesday.

In an interview yesterday, Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma reminded the faithful of their obligations during Lent, saying the season should be reserved for prayer and penance.

“We are reminded that we are dust and unto dust we shall return.

That we must repent for our sins and believe in the Gospel,” Palma told reporters.

He said Lent is a time to reflect on Jesus’s Passion and death on the cross.
