40 days to prepare for Easter
Ideas for Lent

The fasting time is a forty days preparation time for Easter. It is given to us as a time to concentrate on Jesus Christ in the Word, the Sacrament and our fellow human beings.

Catholics all over the world are preparing themselves for Easter during this time by fasting, praying, and sharing. Many are giving up special things that they love or they sacrifice them in their everyday life through prayer, time or money for people who need their help.

If you want to make this Lent a special one, but you have not yet decided what this might look like, here are some ideas for you to start with today on Ash Wednesday:

  • Be still to hear your fellow’s sorrow
  • Share with the poor
  • Spend time in the presence of our Lord
  • Donate money you would have used to buy coffee
  • Daily prayer – spend time with God
  • Find foregiveness in the Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • Listen to God’s word – 30 minutes praying with Scripture
  • Fast every day like Ash Wednesday

We would like to invite you to make this Lent a special time. Take the experiment and be part of it!
