Lent 2017 – The Catechism of the Catholic Church

  • Posted March 1, 2017

May you have a Blessed Lent.

Lent is the period of penance preceding Easter. The Forty days of Lent are intended to commemorate the forty days fasting of Our Lord. It lasts from Ash Wednesday till the noon of Holy Saturday. This is a penitential time, in which we follow Jesus Christ closely through the last stages of His mortal life, especially in the last two weeks of Lent.

In keeping with the spirit of Lent, Catholics are expected to abstain from worldly amusements, shows, feasting, etc. As more time should be devoted to prayer, penance, and religious exercises.

This year, to help serve God better, Procinctu will post a lesson from the Catechism of the Catholic Church every day during Lent. We will use Baltimore Catechism #3, Father Connell’s Confraternity Edition. Every day, a new page will feature it’s own lesson, and all pages will be linked to this main page. Please check back here often, or sign-up to have each lesson sent directly to you.

This is a great way to give Our Lord an extra daily devotion He more than deserves. Plus, by the time the Resurrection is celebrated, we will have reviewed the entire Catechism.

God Bless.


Lesson One – The Purpose of Man’s Existence
