Preview: A Lent for the whole world

 | 

I grew up, like most Catholics, thinking that Lent was a gloomy season when we stopped singing "Alleluia!" and eating candy because we had to be sorry for our sins for 40 days. The only good part about Lent was that I just might get to go to the parish fish fry on Friday evening and run around with my grade school buddies.

Sadly, I'm not sure that my understanding of Lent matured much more than that until recent years.
