The penitential season of Lent is the period of forty days beginning on Ash Wednesday.  It is a season of the Church year which commemorates the forty days Jesus fasted and prayed in the wilderness before he began his public ministry of preaching for repentance.  Six Sundays are within the season, the last, Passion Sunday, marks the beginning of Holy Week. Holy Thursday begins the Triduum “three days” before Easter day, which includes Good Friday and Holy Saturday.

After parents, relatives or friends die; it is respectful to bury them well and where possible to visit and clean their graves regularly. Instead of faltering a prayer in fear, it is good to silently address personal thoughts to them and even bring them news about important events in the family like weddings, ordinations, baptisms, new born babies or how children are doing at school. If any of the close relatives is going through difficulties or has been ill, is appropriate to ask for their guidance and prayers on his or her behalf. If one has just returned from an overseas trip, it is in order to tell them where one has been, as though to say I wish they had been there.
