Lent 2009


Well, tomorrow is Lent and though I don’t connect myself with the Catholic Faith, I really do like this part of the year.

Lent is basically a time where you give up something dear and draw yourself closer to God.

The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer—through prayer, penitence, almsgiving and self-denial—for the annual commemoration during Holy Week of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events linked to the Passion of Christ and culminates in Easter, the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

46 days of silence.

What am I giving up??

The first thing is Facebook.
I spent way too much time on there.
more to come…maybe.

As tomorrow quickly approaches, I wanted to see what others will give up? Or do you even participate during this time?
