How true, Bob! I agree with you that we can use Lent to find renewed strength for reaching our health goals. When we realize that our bodies really are temples of the Holy Spirit, and that God wants us to care for this body that houses our eternal soul, that motivates us to be strong and make the right choices. I often find that things I can't seem to do just to lose weight, I can do if I am offering a sacrifice to the Lord in reparation for sin, or for our world, or just to adore Him. Thanks for sharing the articles.

Dee and Mareannie, I'm glad you liked the prayer!

Marge

Of course, first we have to survive Mardi Gras/Carnival! When I was a kid, the days before Lent were for eating every cookie and piece of candy in the house so we were ready for Lent. Can't do that anymore! But Lent is still a wonderful time to meditate on the connection between healthy living and healthy religion, between our weight loss goals and our spirituality. Lent isn't "just for losing weight" but it can be a time for celebrating the holy beauty of loosing weight.

Here are a few articles for reflection:

This Wednesday is "Ash Wednesday".

I'm sharing this prayer to help us prepare for a good Lent.

"Jesus, help us to get to mass and proudly wear our ashes as a sign to all that we follow You and Your church.

Let us fast and abstain not just out of obedience to the church, but rather for the honor
and glory of obeying You.

Christ, You gave us this church, as a guide, to lead us to You, and through the Holy Spirit, we are kept from error in all things.

Help us to pray for the Pope and Bishops, and all the clergy, that they may truly lead us to the eternal kingdom, so some day we can be with You, forever and ever.

Amen and Amen.

Thank you Lord, for loving us totally."

Let's pray for one another and for our nation.
