Ten Things For Lent

Ten Things For Lent

  1. Attend daily Mass at least once a week.
  2. Pray the Stations of the Cross each Friday.
  3. Set aside a few minutes each day to use Lenten reflection booklets provided by your parish.
  4. Do some spiritual reading each day of Lent—either the Bible, one of the papal encyclicals, or other good Catholic literature.
  5. Choose one of your bad habits and, with the help of God’s grace, work to overcome it.
  6. Choose an area of your spiritual life or personality in which you’d like to grow, and, asking for Our Lord’s help, work to improve it.
  7. Write a letter each day of Lent to someone who has helped you, or someone you admire, and thank him or her.
  8. Recite an extra Rosary each day, or say the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
  9. Give up something you enjoy (dessert, movies, pizza, etc.), and donate the money you save to your favorite charity.
  10. Go out of your way to perform a kind deed or favor for someone each day of Lent.
