Lent has come to an end this year again with the celebration of Easter. I love Easter but I always seem to be terrible at practicing Lenten observances. In order to counter act the bad practices I have and give glory to God, I am going to try to upgrade my Catholicism to fasting from meat on all Fridays. If I can remember what day it is, I hope to repent for all the other times I have forgotten about abstaining on Fridays during Lent.
The thing that is really cool though is that Christ loves me even though I forget. It's really not about the meat so much as the grace He wants to pour out on those that seek to follow his will. Abstaining and offering a small sacrifice conjoined with the cross is an act of our free will to love Him in return.
Our Lord has poured upon me so many graces. May I not forget or abuse them in anyway.
