Lenten specials begin

Several features will help readers' journey

By Tony Staley
Compass Editor

Lent begins next week on Feb. 28, Ash Wednesday. As is our custom, we'll offer several features for our readers, starting with this issue and continuing through April 13.

These features will include Fr. Ron Rolheiser's weekly column on spirituality; a column by local lay people, priests and a woman religious reflecting on the Sunday Scripture; a family column by Tom Rinkoski, diocesan director of Family Life; Sunday Scripture columns by Bp. Robert Morneau and Fr. Richard Ver Bust.

In addition, the Sunday Readings page is carrying a special feature to help small faith-sharing groups, couples, individuals and others continue the Renew 2000 experience of praying with the Sunday Scriptures. This feature, "Praying with the Sunday Scriptures," is composed by a Diocesan Faith Sharing Writing Team. The series will run a week in advance to give users enough time to meet - but the columns by Bp. Morneau and Fr. Ver Bust will run right before the Sunday they are writing about. To make room for the "Praying with the Sunday Scriptures" series, the texts of the Sunday readings will not run until the end of Lent.

As always, we welcome your comments.
