Don’t permit this Lenten season to become just another box to check-off on the Liturgical calendar.  Do something that satisfies the “Why?”  Hopefully, we, as Catholic Christians, are doing things with intent and purpose that answer the question, “Why?”  Hopefully, the answer to the “Why?” is, “Because I want to make my God-given life better; I want to become who God created me to be, and the only way I can do that is if I’m improving my understanding of Him and communication with Him.”

Take advantage of one of the many good resources that are available, and use it to make a simple, lasting change in your life.  As Saint (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta said, “Not all of us can do great things.  But we can do small things with great love.”  This Lent use one of these tools to make a small change in your life, so that your life can become a channel of great Love.  Here is a list of good options:
