What to Give Up for Lent


How's your Lent going, so far?

???????? What?

It's not too late to start. Just begin, now, today.

Maybe you've given up. That's probably because you demanded the impossible.

How about beginning again, with something different--really different.

Don't give up anything. Add something.

You could add prayer time, spiritual reading, spending time with someone you'd rather not spend time with, do something nice for someone, give money to a cause that needs it.

I know. Change your attitude. From now on, don't be so judgmental. This one is hard and you'll most probably fail. Of course, it's not natural for you. Try again. And again.

This chart is Father Shane Johnson's. He's a priest from the Legionaries of Christ. I thought it apropos for Lent.
