Ash Wednesday

Lent starts with Ash Wednesday - for everyone, not just me.  I will start my day with mass and ashes at 6:30 a.m.

I have been pondering and praying about what to "do" for lent.  I wanted to add in some activity as well as well as give up something.

I have decided to go to mass or adoration every day of lent.  And also to give up a whole host of horrible dietary excesses.  This may not sound like a lot, but take my word, it is.

My prayer is that this lent readies me for Easter.


  1. Beautiful Lenten background!
    Blessings on your undertakings, they sound substantial to me!

  2. May God bless you with a fruitful Lent, Mary Christine :)

  3. It does sound difficult to me. I hope it's transformative for you. God bless.

  4. We will pray for you, as you will for us, to be able to keep to our Lenten promises.

  5. I would find it difficult to attend daily mass, at least out here, particularly if you work. Between that and changing your diet I think it's very hard! You'll do fine.
