What are you doing for lent? This year I’m giving up alcohol and committing myself to prayer. With two children under five I need to think what I can do, rather than promising something I’m not going to manage. So I thought I’d keep the Holy Hour and say the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
It won’t take too long and I thought it would be helpful in the future as I’ve decided to recite the prayers in French. This means that each day throughout lent I have to say the Our Father, Haily Mary and The Apostles Creed; all prayers I’d be saying in mass in French when I (please God) move.
If you’re interested in joining me I’ve done this little print out ( La Prières á la Miséricorde Divine ) (former teacher, I just can’t help myself) with the prayers and how to recite them.
Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday) will be here soon; gosh the year’s going quick!
