Lent is just days away, beginning on Wednesday, February 14. Has this holy season snuck up on you? Don’t fret! There is still time to choose a meaningful Lenten practice and enter the season prayerfully. During Lent, Catholics are encouraged to focus on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving as they prepare to celebrate the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus. For many people, this takes the form of giving up a favorite food or activity for the 40 days of Lent. But you can do more than just fast.
