"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 have learned that, in order to truly fast for religious reasons, the key is to be intentional! It doesn't matter if you give one thing up for forty days, or perform various small acts of penitential fasting every day, changing things up a bit according to what's going on in your life."
If you are looking for some alternatives to the traditional fasting for religious reasons, you do not want to miss out on the suggestions contained within this post!
How do you fast on a regular basis?
"As I choke down the bitterness of the coffee, I reflect on my small sacrifice.
I reflect on the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross.
I reflect on how God's Mercy impacts me every day.
I reflect on my faith and relationship with God." How a small sacrifice of creamer in my coffee has helped me grow spiritually during the N90 Challenge.
