We once again begin our Lenten journey; a time when we are called to reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus and to align ourselves with His teachings. We are called to "turn away from sin and believe in the Gospel." So how do we live that out? Some of us may give something up for the next 40 days - candy, video games, coffee, etc. Others may choose to "give up" some of their time to do something extra - prayer, charity, service, etc. Whatever we choose to do (or not do, as the case may be,) let it bring us into closer union with Christ, so that when Easter comes, we can truly celebrate the new life of the Resurrection.
