Ever since then though, Lent hasn’t been as easy. What do to do? What to give up? I don’t really commit to any particular task and thus never execute it well. So, here we go.
- Cut out snacks.
- Only drink water when dining out (e.g. don’t pay for anything than what comes as part of the meal).
- Pray some part of the Liturgy of the Hours as a family
Now that a week of Lent is past us, how’s it going so far?
I’ve done fairly well on cutting out snacks. No major deviations. We haven’t had anything but water, except at the St. Ignatius fish fry since coffee/tea is part of the package. Most nights, we’ve prayed Night Prayer together except the couple of times we didn’t go to sleep at the same time.
