Lent is the time for trimming the soul and scraping the sludge off a life turned slipshod. Lent is the time to make new efforts to be what we say we want to be. — Sister Joan Chittister, from The Rule of Benedict: Insight for the Ages

Fast from taking the little blessings in life for granted.

Pray for those who have lost their ability to exercise control, especially those who are struggling with addictions.

Give the extra effort today to be the person you say you want to be.
