Lent update

How's your Lent going so far?  Is it your best Lent ever?  Are you having trouble fasting and giving up something?  Do you feel any closer to God?  Have you spent any additional time in prayer and/or service or ministry to God?  Are you reading the Bible or any other spiritual or theological books to draw you into a more deeper understanding of God's purpose and direction for your life?  Lent is a time for spiritual exercises to help you make your walk with God a better and more fulfilling one.  Use these weeks before Easter to draw closer to Jesus and walk with Him as the Holy Spirit leads you.  God is good...all the time!

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of the Lenten season.  Traditionally, many people choose to give up something like chocolate or desserts, in order to draw themselves closer to God during the 40 days of Lent.  Others choose to do something extra, like go to morning Mass or say the Rosary every day, as a way to draw themselves closer to Christ.  Whatever you choose to do, prayerfully consider how you might use the 40 days of Lent to make you a better person, a better Christian, a better parent, sibling, or friend.  Use this Lent to make a difference.  Let's make this the best Lent ever!
