Father "Bill" Messenger, who was accused last month of allegedly touching inappropriately an adult male student, once gave the following advice about Lent.
The Christian Post reports ...
Father William Messenger ... believes doing something active for the season [of Lent] is a better way to deepen a student’s relationship with God than the traditional way of abstinence. I would prefer that students add charitable acts to their [Lenten observance] rather than omit things, he said. "My standard homily on Ash Wednesday includes, 'I do not give up Scotch, so bring all your half-empty bottles to me.' "
