Prayer, fasting and almsgiving are the staples of the Lenten season.
My prayers today have been very much for one of our sons who was admitted to hospital this afternoon (nothing major, just necessary), and for my husband who will stay with him throughout.
Fasting: I have never successfully fasted a whole day on bread and water, today it has been bread+butter and coffee.(and one egg).
Almsgiving: I wonder if a donation to the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary would count as almsgiving?
