What Did You Give Up? #Lent

by Maryann Pisano on February 21, 2016


It’s that Lenten time of year where we reflect on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  Several non- Catholics are confused as to why we give up something during Lent.  Giving up something for Lent is a form of fasting.   By depriving ourselves of a small pleasure or indulgence, we can give our attention to God instead.  This can be positive since we could “give up” a bad habit such as smoking.

What will you give up?  Your daily latte?  Pop?  Candy?  You can also do something for somebody, like helping an elderly neighbor or volunteer at a homeless shelter during Lent.  Use this time to remember God in our busy lives.
