Can there be joy in Lent?

Is the Pope Catholic?

If you're surprised, look again at the eucharistic prayer preface for Lent I (P8): "Each year you give us this joyful season when we prepare to celebrate the paschal mystery with mind and heart renewed." Then take a listen to Fr. James Martin, SJ, with his Ash Wednesday commentary from National Public Radio.

So smile, it's Lent!
