Today at school we celebrated the beginning of Lent. The celebration started with the song ‘Everything I do…I do it for you’ by Bryan Adams. We were first introduced to this song by Mr Warren Busuttil who explained how the lyrics of this song relate with the love God showed us when He gave us His only Son Jesus who died for us on the cross.
The Form 1 students together with Mr Darrel Pace continued the celebration by singing the song ‘Everyday God’.
Soon after, Rev Dr Carl Mario Sultana celebrated mass were the ashes which were later used for the Ash Wednesday celebration were blessed. During the homily he challenged us all to make something different and significant during Lent which can help us grow spiritually and make us holier.
Finally, the Headmaster invited each one to experience together these holy days in order to discover the mystery of Christ’s Resurrection. He added how we should all try during this time and be closer to God by receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
