1st Sunday of Lent
Lent is a great opportunity for us - an excuse to slow down a little bit, turn off the TV, turn off the radio, and spend some extra time with our Father. Our Lenten practices shake us out of our daily routine and provide us an opportunity to look up to our God. Jesus in the desert wins against the temptations of the devil by looking up to His Father for strength. In the midst of your Lenten practices, do you do them by your own will power? Or do you let these practices turn your heart and mind to the Father in true and honest prayer? Then even the simplest actions will give your faith a supernatural strength.
