This weekend, the 6th Sunday of Ordinary Time which is the last Sunday before Lent, Fr. Maderak spent a good portion of his homily speaking about our duties and obligations for penance - a very important and often misunderstood topic. This is very timely as Lent begins this Wednesday and is a time of penance. He mentioned the Apostolic Constitution by St. Pope Paul VI entitled "Paenitemini (Penance)". Please read this document as it is outlines what we are called to do regarding penance, not only for Lent, but during the whole year.
