Written by News Room on March 3, 2022
As Christians begin observance of 40 days Lenten season, Rev. Fr. Cyprain Mbamara of the Abeokuta Catholic Archdiocese has called for self-denial.
Mbamara gave a sermon at Saint Andrew’s Catholic Church in Lusada near Lagos, to mark 2022 Ash Wednesday.
Ash Wednesday heralds the commencement of the Lenten season – a 40-day period of abstinence and sober reflection by Christians.
Mbamara urged Christians to pray, fast and give alms to the needy during Lenten season.
He added that they should abstain from eating meat and spending lavishly.
