Today is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent.  The forty days before Easter, and a time for reflection, penance and fasting which prepares us for Easter Sunday, the day of Christ's resurrection.

1.  Prayer-continue praying a decade of the Rosary and learn more about my faith by reading the catechism
2. Fasting-from cursing, a vice that has reared it's ugly head
3. Alms giving- as Fr. Barron suggests, giving at a minimum $5 to any charity that sends me a request in the mail.

What will you be doing during Lent?
