Facebook Fever

Facebook Fasting

At first I thought I was the only one considering "fasting from facebook", then slowly a FB friend here and there said they would be too - so I didn't feel all alone. Then I was sent the link from a friend about an article the National Catholic Register ran about it. Now I know I am one of many who feel that it will be a sacrifice to give it up. It has only been 20 minutes since Lent began (it is now 12:20am - Ash Wednesday) and I already just want to pop in and respond to a friend request - I hope they don't think I am rude by not replying.

Next Wednesday is Ash Wednesday - how are you going to live this season?
I often struggle with this. Spending a lot of time discerning how I will spend the Lenten season, what will I give up? what will I add? Some years I do so much better than others. Last year I got to Holy Thursday and thought - " how did it go by so fast? and did I really grow in love and holiness?" I want this year to be different. I need my Lent to make a difference in my life. We all do. We live in such a secular-nonChristian world that we need to take a good look at our Catholic identity. Our Catholic faith and how we live it.

I will probably give up pop and between meal snacks and TV -these are my yearly sacrifices but I need to do more - daily mass, meditations, stop complaining, rid myself of excess in all areas - all things that I need to do anyways but the gift of Lent reminds me of them.

My plan is grand - but what is a plan if it isn't grand!
