Get Your Ash in Gear…

 

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, 40 days of prayer, fasting and confession leading up to the Easter holy week. Lent really becomes a time of taking ancient practices and putting them in a relevant context. Starting on Ash Wednesday and every day of Lent after that, try to “Fast -Pray -Give “, which will be a daily jolt of spiritual contemplation relating to Lent, with new and practical ideas for fasting, prayer and almsgiving.

FAST by eating just one meal today (and remember, no meat! — light snacks are ok)

PRAY that when you find yourself feeling alone you look for comfort not in society but in God.

GIVE time today to someone in your life you know is lonely.
