I have been thinking about what I am going to do this Lent to grow in my relationship with Jesus. Ironically – or maybe God put it in front of my eyes – I came across Fr. Mike Schmitz’s video “Preparing for Lent.” The video reminded me of the three aspects of Lent: (1) Prayer, (2) Fasting and (3) Almsgiving. I was encouraged to solidify my Lenten plans. I am going to (1) read the Magnificat Lenten Companion’s daily reflections, (2) only look at Facebook (and any other social media sites) at night after my children are in bed, and (3) write a note to 40 people.
