I am actually looking forward to Lent this year and I hope to grow in my relationship with the Lord by more Bible reading, more reception of the Sacraments, and more daily prayer. It's a great season of self denial, growth and expectation of the Resurrection.
I'm thinking about a real fat Tuesday since I want to give up meat, dairy, and sweets for Lent. Some friends of mine who go to the Byzantine rite Mass do this and I want to join them this year. I think this could be beneficial to my health right now too.
