My Lenten Schedule
edit_button

This is my daily prayer schedule for the Holy Season of Lent. I'm hoping that some of you readers will be able to join me in praying and reading this Lent.

Morning:

Wake up and say the Guardian angel prayer
Listen to the daily Mass readings (if I can't go to Mass)
Pray Morning Prayer (Lauds)

Throughout the Day:

Go to Mass (if possible)
Meditate and reflect on the passion and death of Our Savior
Read The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ (2 links each day)
Read the segments of the Early Church Fathers

Evening:

Pray Evening Prayer (Vespers)
Pray special prayers for the poor, sick and the souls in purgatory

Above all I'm trying to become holier and reflect more deeply on the passion and death of Our Savior for me. This realization of the ultimate love compels us to serve one another, so I will be emailing and talking this entire season about the importance of the Catholic faith. Throughout the entire season I will be giving up all sweets and "good food" while performing other voluntary acts of penance. I hope to contribute to many other good Catholic and pro-life organizations. I'll also be praying the Stations of the Cross every Friday.

We'll be watching 'The Passion of the Christ' tomorrow night after the Ash Wednesday mass. it's a good way to kick off the lenten season.

I'll be interested to see if you like the Dolorous Passion. I have tried once to read it and found it difficult. I am going to try again this lent.

Good luck and God bless you.

i'd just like to say that your attempts to get "holier" will do you no justice, seeing as we have all been made holy through the blood of Jesus Christ, who stands before the Father in our defense, not allowing God to see our tormentful sinful lives that no matter how much good we do, we are drowned in our transgressions, i do also look forward to lent, not as a time when i can try and make up for my other sins i've commited this year by fasting and refraining from certain things, which when used with the right motivation, can focus hearts and minds on the message, but i look forward to lent more to see the passion of my Lord on his way to the cross, what he had to go through to totally cleanse me from my sin so i can be in heaven with him
