Preparing for Lent
Most of us wait till the last minute to decide what we will do for Lent to deepen our faith, and we wind up doing the usual: giving up chocolate, etc. (fasting). But Lent calls on us to take part in praying and giving, as well as fasting. We have 2 weeks until the start of Lent; perhaps this will be the year we take on new activities in all three disciplines: read each day’s gospel or a new publication (e.g., Upper Room), make a charitable contribution each week, fast from a bad habit...and if you can do it for 6 weeks, who knows?! Lent could be the start of new habits and new blessings.
