Today we begin that long walk towards Holy Week, which culminates in celebrating the greatest event in human history: the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Something that never fails to inspire awe in me however, is just how diverse our expressions of faith are. Encountering different Catholic rituals around the world, sometimes I'm intrigued, other times shocked.
Nevertheless, all of these devotions are an opportunity to reflect more deeply on Christ.
In the coming days, I’ll share with you images of Lent from around the world in a blog series entitled:
A Walk with the Lord.  I hope you'll enjoy!
