Happy Ash Wednesday

Happy ‘Dirty Forehead Day’!

Today marks the beginning of our Lenten journey this year: with fasting and abstention from meat. How are YOU preparing this year? Traditionally, Catholics “give up” something for Lent. It might be something indulgent that is enjoyed regularly, or perhaps something that is altogether harmful and unwholesome. As a suggestion, try something a little different this year. You could do more of something as a way of observing Lent. For example, instead of saying, “I will not eat chocolate for all of Lent,” you could try promising to yourself, “When ever I feel the urge to eat chocolate, I will instead take 30 seconds where ever I am at to say a short silent prayer.” It might prove to be more meaningful for some of you out there.
