Catholics all over the country will today, February 10 begin the 2016 Ash Wednesday, signalling the beginning of the 40-day season of Lent.


This was contained in a statement signed by the Director of Social Communications, Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Msgr. Gabriel Osu.


In the statement, Osu said,“In Catholic Churches all over the world, the faithful are expected to receive ash on their foreheads on Ash Wednesday as a sign of repentance.


The director of communications said the Lenten observance should not just end during the season, but should continue for the fruit to germinate and bear more fruits.


He enjoined all Nigerians to also use the period to pray for lasting peace and development in Nigeria. (NAN)


Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter.


Christians have been encouraged to intensify prayers, observe abstinence, fasting and alms giving.
