Since I was a little girl I always heard that Holy Week was the “week of love”. In some countries they call it “The Higher Week”. If that name holds true, if Holy Week is indeed a “higher” week, the week of love, we better prepare our hearts for it. So I invite you, myself included, to start “fattening the heart” for that week. We are so use to “giving something up for lent”, but if is the week of love, I think instead of a “skinny” heart we need to have a “fat heart” – we need to expand our hearts, so we can love more. Let’s prolong “fat Tuesday” into a “Fat lent”.

Over the next few weeks I would like to offer some reflections based on the insights of the Holy Father, Benedict XVI, in his Lenten message. Under his guidance we will “fatten our hearts” by putting in action our Faith, as he encourages us, being active through love.
