Season of Lent Here are some ideas to help us make Lent a more positive experience.
- Work on eliminating one sin or fault that is getting in the way of your relationship with God and others.
- Add one positive activity that will deepen your prayer and spiritual life, especially if you find that you have been too busy lately.
- Deny yourself one thing you really like or are attached to.
(Our Sunday Visitor - Lent, Keep it Simple)
Try to focus on these three areas every day, taking "no breaks" or "days off" all the way to Holy Saturday!
