Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. Ash Wednesday marks the start of the season of Lent, which begins 40 days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count).
During Lent, many Christians commit to fasting or giving up something as a form of penitence.
Last year I gave up my laziness. I don’t regularly go to mass. I can come up with dozens of reasons not to go but mostly due to my laziness.
This year I have a 3-part-sacrifice
- Laziness, same with last year
- Something really personal so it’ll be just between me and God
- Credit Cards and excessive spending. I know it’ll be a personal gain (later on) but also difficult since I’m going home and need to buy gifts or pasalubongs. Also my birthday, HK Disneyland tour and Holy Week trip to Bora will fall within the 40 days.
It’s gonna be hard!
That’s why it’s called sacrifice.
So, what are you giving up this Lent?
