What are you giving up for Lent?
« on: February 21, 2018, 08:55:20 AM »
We are one week into the season of Lent.  For those who observe this time of self-denial in any form, what are you giving up?  How is it going so far?


I'm fasting from Coke and fast food.  I usually have an iron will when it comes to Lent, but not this time.  I've already slipped up twice and grabbed a Coke without thinking about it.  I need to pay a penance, but haven't decided on what that will be.  Any ideas?

I have a terrible potty mouth, so I usually try to focus on that every year. So far, I haven't had a year when it worked it out really well, but I keep trying.

I'm not sure what to tell you about penance because if you're Catholic, that should come from a priest. A couple of soda slip-ups will probably only be some extra prayers, though.

I do nothing different for this Lent season. I avoid meat and coffee at least every Friday. I also avoid unnecessary expenses, such as buying expensive food, going to the mall, or watching movies. I'm trying to focus on living for what really matters. Going okay so far, but maybe because I'm used to it already. No real challenge there.

In the past, I was fasting longer than I should have or I didn't eat meat for one full week if I couldn't control myself. Anything that required extra effort. I think anything works as long as it comes from yourself who realizes the mistake and wants to do better.
