Lent is here....how's it going for you?
I have to admit that Lent has become a habit. A familiar comfortable habit that no longer causes me any discomfort. What I gave up isn't a struggle any longer and I have not been at all consistent in other resolutions. Yuck!
I have two choices - give up and just slide my way to Easter knowing that no one knows how lousy I've been - well, except for all of you. And God...
OR I can make a recommitment to Lent knowing that God allows for second chances (and third and fourth and five hundred and eleventh!).
I think you know which one I am going to choose. Feel free to make that choice with me. I am not assuming that you need to, but I also know I am not alone in being a slacker Catholic at times.
I am glad that confession is available at my church. :-)
