Lenten Penance a time for renewal

Many of us “give up something” for Lent.  The sacrifices in Lent are really penance, in the same spirit as the Ninehvites that repented at the preaching of Jonah.  Throughout our history, Christians have found prayer, fasting, and almsgiving to be an important part of repentance and renewal.  Many people now add something during Lent rather than giving up something, either to address personal habits that needs work or to add some outreach to others in need.

The Church does not specifically require that we do something beyond the requirements of fasting and abstinence.  To do nothing, however, would certainly not be in keeping with the spirit of Lent.  Furthermore, the sacrifices and extra things we do for Lent help us grow closer to Christ.  We are missing out on so many graces if we do not participate fully in Lent.  It is not necessary to be perfect, but we should put forth a good effort.

A good practice is to do something extra in prayer, something involving fasting (whether limiting our intake of food or giving up something non-food related), and something involving almsgiving (giving money or goods to the needy or doing extra acts of charity).

ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

St Alphonsus Liguori

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Blessed Sacrament, I love You above all things and I desire You in my soul, Since I now cannot receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart, I embrace you and unite myself to you; Permit not that I should ever be separated from You.
