For the week of the Second Sunday of Lent here are more simple suggestions to help you along on your Lenten journey. This resource comes from www.Sadlier.com/Religion. We pray everyone finds a way, a resource, etc., to help them on their journey to the Celebration of Easter!
We remind you that during Lent we are preparing for the celebration of Easter. The journey began on Ash Wednesday and continues to Holy Thursday and then we enter the three most Holy Days of the Liturgical Season, the Triduum. Lent is like a retreat. It is a time of Prayer and Worship, Fasting, and Sharing our Resources (Giving in Mercy).
Second Week of Lent: Prayer and Worship … Spend time going over the Sunday readings by yourself or with your family. Get to church early this week in order to spend extra time preparing to celebrate the liturgy.
Fasting and Abstinence … Offer up a bit of time normally used to watch television and use it to pray for or provide assistance to someone who is suffering or in need of healing.
Sharing with Others … Share the world’s energy by turning down the heat, taking shorter showers, or walking or biking instead of driving to a destination.
How are you doing this Lent?
