Gearing Up For Lent

Lent begins in a couple of days with Ash Wednesday.  How will you be trying to get closer to Christ this Lent?  Here are some resources to help get you started:

EWTN's Lenten & Easter Meditations 2010

Pope Benedict XVI's Lenten Message for 2010

You need to go to confession. Here is a fantastic website from the Archdiocese of Boston about The Sacrament of Reconciliation (aka: Confession) TheLightIsOnForYou.org   It has lots of resources and examinations of conscience. 

I have discovered a fantastic podcast called Into the Deep.  Three married lay men discuss how to get closer to Christ through prayer and learn about what the Catholic faith teaches.  They are so enthusiastic and it is great to listen to them.  Here is one set of podcasts to get you started: How Lent Makes You Holy: Part 1 and Part 2.

One of the most fruitful things you can do during Lent is read some good, solid Catholic books.  Try one of these four Lenten Reading Plans to get you started.  This is very well done!
