not just for Catholics...

Suddenly, it's March, and Christians all over the world are talking about Lent.

Why? Here's some food for thought.

Give it up for Lent
So why fast? Why abstain from something? Simple: for the benefit of your neighbor. The truth is, our lives are filled with things which satisfy US, they make US happy, and provide enjoyment--for US! But to give up things that we normally do or use in order to use the extra time or money for prayer, for hearing and studying God's Word or for doing good to those around us--now THAT is something useful.

Giving up or slowing down

Instead of a fast, let's call it a "slow."
