"For the first time in my cradle-Catholic life existence, I truly felt I walked away from Lent with an understanding of what it means to sacrifice - not in a painful sacrificial way, but perhaps in a manner which was more spiritually connected with the reason and the introspective nature of Lent." Today, I'm revisiting a post as part of #WorthRevisit I previous wrote about non-traditional fasting, and explore another approach to the three pillars of Lent.
I invite you to join in on this new series of "Bold, Brave, Catholic" individuals who are living in normal, everyday situations, but in a Bold, Brave, Catholic manner.
"Through the 'Bold, Brave, Catholic' series, it is my hope that the words others write will assist someone else on their journey of faith."
Based on a whisper in my heart, and a moment in which I was led to stand up for my Catholic Faith, I am creating a new series - and, spearheading a movement to "Be bold. Be brave. Be Catholic." Will you join this movement?
"On today's Feast of Epiphany, I encourage you, dear reader, to join me in writing down three gifts - three talents - you have been given, which can be used for the Glory of God. Place that list prominently, and use it to guide you in creating your resolutions for 2019." Tackling a deeper meaning and reminder behind today's Feast of Epiphany and my favorite Christmas carol! What are your gifts?
"Unlike Mary, as a mother, my hands are blemished... Through prayer, actions of love, and trust in God's plan, I will work on turning the blemishes into holiness." Kicking off 2019 with a reminder of the example of Mary, Mother of God.
