Resources for Lent

(CNS/Mike Crupi, Catholic Courier)As we begin our Lenten journey, St. Anthony Messenger magazine offers one woman’s reflection on “Getting Lost in Lent,” along with possible steps for those who “stumble into the Lenten season with bruised souls.”

And speaking of Lent, the Florida Catholic had a cute story last week about a retiree who burns palms for Ash Wednesday in a custom-made burner at home and what happened when a neighbor dialed 911.

Also for Lent, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a news release on Lenten resources, including a special USCCB Web page for Lent.
