Lent is essentially an act of prayer spread out over 40 days. As we pray, we go on a journey, one that hopefully brings us closer to Christ and leaves us changed by the encounter with him. Spend a few extra minutes in prayer today.
If you haven't already done so, make a list of ways in which you plan to pray more, fast, and give alms this Lenten season. There are still a number of weeks until Easter—how can you deepen your Lenten commitment?
Consider reading one of the Psalms on Saturdays, challenge yourself to fast from speaking any negative or critical word on Fridays, or do an act of generosity on Mondays.
