First Sunday of Lent

Begone Satan!
So, how's your lent going?  Or are you saying, "Is it Easter yet?"  Did you cave and eat that chocolate?  Get up and try again (I don't mean try the chocolate again... haha)  Your chocolate might be in some other form like a tv or soda or alcohol or taking seconds or shopping or internet..... Did you finish your spiritual reading goal each day? If not, Sundays are a good day to catch up.  Do you need to simplify your goals?  Do you need to add a little more?  Renew your lenten goals and plunge ahead another week.

Remember, Sundays fall outside the Great Lenten Fast, so it's a day you can ease up a little, however it doesn't mean go hog-wild either. 

In the Little Flowers of St. Francis you can read about St. Francis spending his Lent on an island, you can also find it here.

Onward soldiers!
