What We're Doing During Lent
So it's officially Lent. As you see, I've pared down the layout of this blog for the season. If you click around on the options for viewing, you will see that there are many ways of looking at the blog - mess around with the tabs on the top left (that say classic, magazine, flipcard, etc.) to see the possibilities. I hope you'll enjoy it and use the images and posts in your Lenten reflection.
Lent is a time of penitence, of reflection, of preparation, of study, of almsgiving, fasting and prayer. It is also a time of learning and deep joy.
I hope to provide a place of reflection and joy here. You'll have to do the penitence and fasting and almsgiving yourself.
I also hope to help out with your learning by directing you to play Lent Madness this year where you go every weekday during Lent to read about and vote for the saint you think is most worthy (using whatever criteria you think appropriate) between the two who are matched up that day.
The learning and fun begins today at www.lentmadness.org. Polls are open for 24 hours each day. So, go forth daily and vote!
