Season 5, From the Pulpit, Episode 41: Why Lent Exists and Is Necessary

Father Joseph Selway

Father Joseph Selway

The most sacred season of the liturgical year is here: Lent. We welcome back Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church in West Chester, Ohio, and Father Joseph Selway, assistant pastor of Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida.

Father Selway starts by taking us through some of the Catholic customs, which are no longer in effect, that are much stricter than what we must abide to today. Following, he continues onto penance.

The little discomforts our bodies suffer and the meager pleasures we deny ourselves are nothing compared to eternal bliss; and these sacrifices will gain this for us.

Secondly, Bishop Daniel Dolan explains why Lent is necessary for us and why true Catholics undertake penance during the season.

Join us on this episode of From the Pulpit.
