I’m not a Catholic, but I have religious envy over the season of Lent.
So, I’m going to adopt it into my theology this year.
I like the idea of depriving ourselves of something. It builds character and stamina and discipline.
I’ve had Catholic friends and some of them wear the ash cross on their forward, as a reminder of symbolic humility while enduring and enjoying our restraint.
I sent an email to my family and friends to join me in the season of Lent and go 40 days without sweets or added sugar.
I’ll start yesterday, since I made it sugar free yesterday.
There are some people that have a hard time just starting.
