Lent is Here.
Thought for today:
Ash Wednesday is a reminder of what is temporary, and what is permanent. Are the problems I’m upset about today worth my time and energy? Am I focusing too much on this temporary world rather than making my soul ready for eternity?
Action for today:
Invite a friend or family member to come to mass with you today. Don’t be afraid to wear your ashes in public (at the store, at work, or at school) because it’s a great conversation starter!
Prayer for today:
Jesus, help me to journey closely with you in the desert over the next 40 days. Show me how I can be a better version of myself this Lent, and turn my focus from the world to heaven.
Quote for today:
“Lent is a new beginning, a path leading to the certain goal of Easter, Christ’s victory over death. This season urgently calls us to conversion.” — Pope Francis (CLICK TO TWEET)
Be a Hero today – #ShareJesus
Our heroes are people who take risks each day to share their faith. Here’s a simple idea to help you do that: Ask a friend to do something during Lent with you, such as reading a spiritual book together, going to Adoration once a week, doing some kind of service work, or simply just praying together every day.
