Lenten Reflection

A different Approach to Fasting this Lent

Beloved, fasts have a tendency to be oriented towards things like giving up food or television. But there are many other creative ways we can welcome Jesus’ healing touch this Lent. Here are suggestions you may want to consider

1.     Fast from Anger

Give your Family, friends and even your enemies an extra dose of love this season.

 2.  Fast From Judging Others

Before making judgments, recall how Jesus over looks our faults.

3.     Fast from Discouragements

Hold on to Jesus’ promise that He has a perfect plan for your life.

4.     Fast from Complaining

When you find you are about to complain, close your eyes and recall some of the little moments of joy Jesus has given you.

5.     Fast from Resentment or Bitterness

Work on forgiving those who may have hurt you.

6.     Fast from Spending Too Much Money

Try to reduce your spending by ten percent (10%), and give those savings to the poor and the needy.

7.     Spend Extra time for Personal Prayers

In place of excessive talking dedicate more time to mental and contemplative prayers.

Wishing you all Peace, Love and Happiness during this Lent

Smile Jesus Loves You!
