Lent is officially upon us, and that means I've been setting aside the time to engage in some extra disciplines, as well as taking some time to consider ways I can better love and serve. I've given up my snooze button in favor of being able to devote a portion of my morning to prayer, and I've also been following along the readings for the daily Mass, a habit I always intended to form someday. I've found it incredibly helpful for guiding my thoughts and reflections throughout the day, and for orienting my heart toward the heart of God.
Even if you're not Catholic or don't normally engage in a liturgical style of worship, you too might find something like these helpful as we journey together through a season of penitence and service in preparation for Good Friday and Easter.
Yesterday's readings can be found here (I don't know when I've found Leviticus so incredibly moving). Check out this past Friday's as well if you get a chance (I love Isaiah).
How are you observing the season of Lent?
