Preparing for Lent ...

... by eating the homemade cookies my mom gave me on Saturday.

The bag is almost entirely gone.

Then again, hauled myself for 13 miles yesterday, so I'll allow myself the cookies.

Ash Wednesday on ... Wednesday.  Gearing up here are the friary ... how are you gearing up?

I'm folding my rice bowl and getting out my beads to say a chaplet of Divine Mercy every day, a practice I've let slip my mind for far too long.

Now getting the Sacramental prep kids excited about fasting and almsgiving is tougher. But I think they understand that fasting prepares you for bigger sacrifices later if needed and helps you to appreciate how Jesus sacrificed for us.
