TO all catholics what is your lenten commitment if you wish to share. I know sometimes they are personal so I don't want to make it seem like I am preasureing it.

I'm going to work for a more devout life. Be more happy about church and my prayer life. Put more trust in God etc... Go to mass As Often as Possible.

Excellent question mizar. Ive been thinking about this for weeks. id probably say im going to give up probably tv or all amusements and focus
on prayer, most notibly the rosary.


I think working on your devout life to God is excellent, especially attending mass, I need to do more of that too myself. One thing ill probably keep doing during
lent is still use the internet, but stuff like tv I think im giving up for this lent.


My grandmother gives up all soda and chocolate for lent, and thats incredible because thats all she does is drink soda and eat dove bars.

Im giving up the ham and cheese baglesat my school. They're so good. I wish I had one right now, but my love for God is stronger then my love of ham and cheese bagles.
