Getting Ready for Holy Week


This Sunday is Palm Sunday - another Lent almost gone.

While I haven't done everything I had hoped to for Lent, I had one big success - my kids noticed a difference between Lent and ordinary time! And that was huge for me. So many times in the evening I heard dialogue that went something like...

"I feel like something sweet. Why don't we go make brownies!?"

"We can't. It's Lent."


and those were my kids talking. So obviously there has been a change there.

Personally, I prayed the Divine Office more, which is becoming more and more an important part of my life. I feel more comfortable finding my way around those big prayer books. We've made it to stations twice. Our parish uses the one by St. Alphonsus Liguori, which has some challenging things in it. For example:

I embrace all the sufferings You have destined for me until death.

Clearly not something to be said lightly.

But there are some more things that I would like to accomplish before and during Holy Week.
