What is the purpose of Lent? Why do Catholics take this time to spend in prayer and fasting? Fr. Clark Philipp '10 explains in this video how we should use this time to rend our hearts, or in other words, remove the calluses that have built up on our hearts and made them hard. By ridding ourselves of these things that prevent us from living and loving well, God can transform our hearts and better prepare us to celebrate the passion, death, and Resurrection of Christ during Easter.
