Lent is a time of preparation for the death of Christ on Good Friday and His Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Starting Wednesday, February 18th, it is a time when people make a renewed attempt to be better Christians and to understand their religion better. Thanks to Stephen Fry’s outburst, religion and God have been much discussed topics and Fr. Vincent O’Hara, a Carmelite explained that Lent is a time to know God better and why¬†he too doesn’t believe in the God described by Stephen Fry. He explained more to Miriam Gormally but began by explaining why Lent still has a “meaning for all kinds of people”.
