A Plan for Lent

By Sister Maria Hughes, ASC

Today, we begin the Season of Lent, a holy time marked by prayer, fasting and almsgiving. These three traditional disciplines are paths to greater balance and wholeness in our spiritual lives.  While thinking about this season, I came across a little reflection by Jerry Welte about these three disciplines.

Here are his thoughts for Lenten practice, first published in “Words of Grace, Daily Reflections & Prayers for Catholics.”

Prayer:

  • Balance your spiritual life by integrating the body, mind and soul in your prayer life.
