Lent began with Ash Wednesday, February 18.
40 years ago, Catholic in the United States wanted to respond to famine in Africa. Could we feed the hungry through Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving? The answer was yes -- and it came in the form of a small cardboard box. 40 years later, it still does.
