To prepare well for the Lenten Period, Mr. Leung shared the true meaning of Lent and his reflection of this spiritual season. Lent is a time for us to reflect, pray, self-deny and focus on God and love. Praying and practicing self-denial are good preparation for Lent. We could train our self-discipline and restrain from temptations. Although self-denial may seem to be an immediate loss, if we can withhold our desires and pleasures, it could bring a larger reward or long-term happiness.
Besides giving something up, the Lenten Period is also a time for us to give something to the poor and needy, such as service or financial support. The boys are encouraged to offer help to anyone they see while making a small donation would also be an ample assistance to the needy.
