Reflect: Lent is here, but don’t worry there is actually no “pre-Lent.” You aren’t too late. Today is a great day to start and decide what you are doing for Lent. Lent means springtime and it is a season to prepare for the celebration of the Paschal mystery. God wants to do something new in your life. This Lent intentionally fast from something to make more space for God in your life, pray to encounter him, and give to the poor as part of surrendering all to Jesus.
Share: Invite a friend, family member, or co-worker to do a Lenten activity with you this week.
Pray: Jesus, I give you my life, my heart, and this season of Lent. I pray for the grace to receive all that you desire to give me this Lent. Transform my heart as I mark myself with ashes. I repent of my sin and choose you this day. Amen

Today’s Podcast: God sees our fast, our sacrifice, and knows what we do in secret for Him. Rather than proclaiming (or bragging) to everyone what your fast will be, share it with God alone, and know that He is with you this Lent.
