(Lenten) Ideas to work on your relationship with God

Today, we enter into the liturgical season of lent , where Jesus went into the desert to prepare Himself for His crucifixion and death.

Often times before big moments in our lives there are moments of preparation. Before marriage we have to do marriage courses, before getting a job we have to prepare for an interview, or before we bring a baby home we have to prepare a home for this new child. Lots of different ways we prepare for different occasions in our lives.

Lent is a time for us to prepare, for the Easter Triduum. It's an opportunity for us to grow in our relationship with God. It's to work on those areas of our life that need improvement, and strive for holiness.

If you haven't already thought of ways that you could work on your relationship with God this Lenten season, here are some ideas.

- wake up 20 minutes early and say the rosary

- take a cold shower instead of a hot one

- go to adoration once a week

- instead of shopping offer up money to a religious organization

- pick up a spiritual book

- read the Bible

- attend weekday masses

- go to confession once a week

- serve people within your community, by helping out at the food kitchen or volunteering at a seniors home (if allowed with Covid restrictions)

- help your neighbours with things like shovelling the driveway or picking up their mail, or watering their plants etc.

Find ways to grow in holiness in this Lenten season. Ask the Holy Spirit to inspire you, guide you and show you what He is calling you to do.

Praying for you.

In Christ,
