Lent will be here in two days and I have yet to decide on my sacrifices for the season. We discussed it at our Mardi Gras dinner the other night. One friend really wants to give up chemo, but she won't. Her last treatment is during Holy Week. Another family will focus on praying the Stations of the Cross every Friday at church. I am considering giving up TV and maybe wine and getting to daily Mass. Anohter friend wants to get to daily Mass. Through the years we've done various things: given up meat entirly, no TV, no computer games, coins in your Rice Bowl for an offense, always going to confession as a family.
I'll need to spend some time in prayer and make some decisions.
