What can you add to your life that will improve your spiritual life and your relationship with God? After all, isn’t that the idea of Lent, to prepare the way for the Lord? To change what we do for 40 days so that it becomes a habit? If your struggling for some ideas here are some suggestions:
- Go to Confession regularly – weekly or biweekly. START TODAY!
- Say the rosary daily
- Go to Mass more often – the Sunday obligation is the MINIMUM!
- Pray EVERY DAY for an end to abortions
- Spend more time with your family and less in front of the TV
- Spend 30 minutes each day alone talking to God. Talk to Him like a friend. Tell him what you’re thinking and doing. Don’t just recite prayers written prayers, but TALK to Him.
These are just a few suggestions of ways to ADD something during Lent. They don’t take a lot of time and the rewards are immense. Try it, it’s only 40 days!
What other things can you think of? I would love to hear your suggestions!
