Lenten Preparation II

February 12, 2013

Today, we celebrate Mardi Gras!  Tomorrow, however, begins our Lenten journey.  Like many of you, today is my final day to decide what am I going to do for Lent.  On dotMagis, I suggested the following questions to help us prepare for our Lenten Journey:

As Lent approaches, the same idea of preparation for our prayer period that St. Ignatius suggests can be helpful in our preparation for Lent.

  • Have we physically set aside a prayer space for our Lenten journey?
  • What time of day will we pray during Lent?
  • What are the “exercises” or prayer methods we will be using during Lent?
  •  What is the grace we desire to deepen within us during Lent?

What are your thoughts for how we can prepare for Lenten Journey?
