I was sent this quote from Pope Francis. It really does add up to a "holy Lent"!

 

Do You Want To Fast This Lent?

In the words of Pope Francis  

Fast from hurting words and say kind words 

Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude 

Fast from anger and be filled with patience 

Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope 

Fast from worries and trust in God 

Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity 

Fast from pressures and be prayerful 

Fast from bitterness and fill your hearts with joy 

Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others 

Fast from grudges and be reconciled 

Fast from words and be silent so you can listen
