In approximately 3 weeks, Ash Wednesday will be upon us. And for good Catholics everywhere, that kicks off the season of Lent. This gives opportunities for bad Catholics like myself to step up to the plate and try to make up for, well, being a bad Catholic. I usually try to take on as many acts of penance as possible because of this. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking.
I started considering what to sacrifice about a week ago. And I haven’t come up with anything concrete. In the past, I’ve given up red meat and sweet tea. Those were pretty rough. Also I went a more traditional route one year and fasted after 3pm. That sucked big time. But right now, I am having no luck on coming up with new ideas. I guess I can recycle these old ones (like I did dressing up as Indiana Jones for Halloween 3 years straight).
So I am asking for suggestions. Some friends have given me a couple of ideas that aren’t bad, but I need more. And once I get 4 or 5 solid ideas, I will put up a poll and let you all decide what I should do. So basically 6 weeks of misery will be in your hands.
I hope to have the poll up by this weekend. So leave a comment with your idea. And please,… be gentle.
