Ash Wednesday thoughts
God bless your Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time to repent and repair. We should be prayerful, of course and mindful that we need to make up for our past sins. What more better time to do so than Lent? As Catholics, we are blessed with the Liturgical seasons and now here we are in Lent. A great time to ponder and pray.
We may wonder what to give up, how about "getting up" a little earlier for those of us who can to get to at least a couple of extra Masses during the week. If we can't get out due to small children health issues, or other obligations, we can use that extra time to pray. We can commit to a daily Rosary which will take fifteen or twenty minutes of our time but will be life-changing!
If you get a chance, please listen to the radio segment which is posted under this post some place to hear my conversation with Teresa Tomeo when we discussed some Lenten ideas. Then, afterwards, take a few minutes to think about which "thief" you will be, the one on the left or the right of Jesus? You'll need to listen to the segment to understand fully what I mean.
You can also go over to "These Forty Days" for Lenten inspiration. The information is in a post below. That's it for now. It's a busy day.
God bless you as you embark upon your Lenten journey! Let's pray that it's the best one yet!
God bless and hugs,
