Living Liturgy Lent Planner | Everyday SnapshotsNext week is Ash Wednesday, and I am just squeaking under the wire with a Lent planner for you guys. Sorry I have been a bit distracted around here.

I don’t know about you, but I am going to go ahead and admit my conundrum with the Lenten season. I stink at sacrifice, quite honestly.  I think Lent backfires a bit on us all-or-nothing, legalistic types.

I tend to hyper-focus on what I have given up and how to stick to the letter of the law, that God gets pushed out of the picture. So I need to find a way this year to offer up my sacrifice and focus more on prayer and growing closer to God. I would love to hear any tips you have for this.

The kids tend to anticipate Lent, because our parish does a great job preparing them for the meaning of the season with our annual Lent Day. Rice Bowls help with the meaning of giving alms, as does a visual aide for sacrifice, like a crown of thorns.

This year I would like to really work on our Rosary habit, and Lent is a good time to do that. There are Rosary and prayer resources on the Living Liturgy resources page.

As for Lent specifically, here are a few more resources to give you (and me) ideas for the season:

You can download your Lent Planner here. I would love to hear how you plan to use it. What will you focus on this season?
