Rt. Rev. Sanctus Lino Wanok, the Bishop of Lira Catholic Diocese, has urged entertainers and bar owners to refrain from playing loud music and organizing concerts during the Lenten period.

Speaking to journalists at his residence in Lira Cathedral Parish, the Bishop emphasized the importance of physical rest for personal productivity, highlighting that partying and spending nights in hangout places are incompatible with the reflective nature of Lent.

Under the theme of "Repentance, Prayer, and Work," Bishop Wanok explained that Lent calls for introspection, repentance from sin, and fasting to overcome personal challenges, thereby fostering a deeper connection with Christ.

//Cue in: “Imagine somebody is…

Cue out: … we might get.”//  

In addition to spiritual practices, the Bishop stressed the significance of engaging in meaningful work during Lent, encouraging Christians to undertake labor that upholds Christian values. 

He cautioned against pride, labeling it as a "capital sin" that leads people away from God, emphasizing the importance of self-control. 

Lent, 40 days observed between Ash Wednesday and Easter, holds great significance in the Christian calendar. It is dedicated to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

//Cue in: “If somebody is…

Cue out: … I deep-seated.”//   

Beginning with self-reflection and repentance, Lent commemorates the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert, enduring temptation. Christians use this time to strengthen their spiritual connection through prayer and self-discipline, often incorporating fasting as a symbol of sacrifice and humility.
