Thoughts on Lent

Fr Longenecker brings us the story of a young man who spends Lent in a Tent (which rhymes by the way). Father leaves us with the following statements:

As you prepare for Lent you may not be called to live in a tent, but learn a lesson from Philip: do something radical and beautiful for God. Do it cheerfully and with good purpose. Give more. Pray more. Sacrifice more. Your life will be better for it. Your family will be better for it. Your church will be better for it. You community will be better for it.

The question is what are you going to do??? What are you taking on or giving up??? This year it was hard coming up with something to do. I have add the rosary into my life, major prayer time as well, and even given thing up at times. This year, I think that I will add a bible study and remove swearing.

Again I ask you…Do you know what you are going to do.

And I leave you with this video:
