Growing up as a Catholic, it has been a tradition to go one to of these traditions. Ash Wednesday is the mark of the first day of the Lent Season and it is the day of repentance.
We are supposed to do a 40-day fasting and praying... it is going to be a challenge for us, especially having a 3-year old son and a 1-year old daughter.
I need to get the family together so we can do a reflection on those things that we've sinned in the past and we will pray for forgiveness.
"Lent is a time to ponder and a time to wonder" (from "Kneeling in Jerusalem" by Ann Weems)
As for the kids, we will try to make them learn the values of forgiveness, patience and love.
How about you? What are your Lent Season plans?
