Lenten Disciplines

As we wind down this Lenten Season, let us not become lax in our faith. We need to continue to practice our Lenten Disciplines so that we emerge from Lent a better person than we were when we began. I know firsthand of the struggles we face during Lent and I am here to help you along the way.  I have a couple tips to fully reenter into this Lenten Season.
1. The Sacrament of Reconciliation- If you have not made a holy, contrite confession recently, please do. The graces that God bestows on us are innumerable, although, frankly, we do not even deserve His Grace. Through the sacrament of confession, we can restore out unity with God which will help us refocus on our Lenten disciplines.
2. Mass- For the remainder of lent please consider going to daily Mass. Receiving the Eucharist devoutly will benefit your spiritual life and strengthen your Lenten disciplines.
Again those are just two ways that I suggest deepening of our spiritual life during this Lenten season. I will be praying for you. and I ask that you do the same!
