Lent - Each Lent you might choose not to let something go, but to take something on: devote yourself to a discipline, exercise, or prayer: reading scripture, attending Mass in the Lady Chapel during the week, asking the priest to hear your confession as you seek reconciliation and healing - that will help you connect with God, creator, redeemer, and sustainer of all that is life-giving in you..
