Lent: The One Month Mark

One month ago today was the beginning of Lent. We have about 2 and a half weeks before we celebrate the Resurrection with Easter Sunday!! So, how have you been doing on your Lenten journey?

I have done okay, but not great. I fasted on Ash Wednesday, and have mostly remained meatless on Fridays. I forgot the Friday I was in Pittsburgh and had meat for both breakfast and lunch that day (I remembered in time for dinner). I also have held to my Lenten promise of no TV; only when I was in the airport did I see any, but that was just news anyway. As for the daily Rosary, I started out okay, but have usually missed a day or two each week since. Chris and I do better with this when we see each other and can do it together than when we are left to our own devises. We're working on it though and hope to continue beyond Lent.

So, how is everyone else doing with your Lenten promises? Share your stories in the comment box if you like.


  1. My Lenten journey has proceeded fair. I had a similar issue at the conference in Lexington. Lunch was a chicken Alfredo dish so I tried to eat around the meat to my best ability. I have participated in a few additional religious services outside of Sunday Mass, but not as much as I would have liked. The first Friday of Lent, I attended a contemporary version of the Stations of the Cross and this Friday I plan to attend Stations of the Cross as well.

    Thanks to you and Chris. I also prayed the rosary the night I was in town and attended YAACK that night which was great. Thanks.

  2. Glad we helped you add a Rosary to your Lenten journey!! It was great to see you that night! Come down again soon. Good luck with the end of your semester!!
