Lenten Sacrifice: A Short reflection

Lent has always been a time of prayerful reflection for me. As a single mom, there’s not a whole lot of quiet in my world, but during Lent somehow I force quiet into the hustle and bustle.  Recently, I’ve been reflecting on what my Lenten sacrifice will be.  I began talking with my daughter about Lent and Easter in the car last week. In traditional Lydia style, she started rambling on about everything she knows about Lent.  I could tell that the conversations from school were fresh on her mind.  When we reached the topic of Lenten sacrifices, she was quick to share with me, “Mommy, I’m going to give up blankie this year.”  “Wow, Lydia!  That’s a big sacrifice!  You sleep with blankie every night!”  She responds, “Mommy, Jesus gave up everything for me, surely I can give up blankie.” 

Isn’t it funny how children can put us in our place so quickly?  That sometimes children understand faith better than adults.

Seven years old and fully prepared to give up something deeply close to her heart, for the sake of our Lord.  Her decision to give up blankie made my thoughts of giving up sodas quite lame.  Perhaps we should think deeper this Lent.  Perhaps we should find our seven year old faith, and sacrifice accordingly.

Retreats: Why You Should Take Advantage of a Retreat

Stress: We all experience stress in our lives and find many ways to cope with it. Did you know, according to a study by the National Institute of Mental health, one-third of teens report feeling anxiety, while 62% of college students feel “overwhelming anxiety”, a survey states from the American College Health Association. Factors of stress often derive from conflict in relationships, classwork, and thinking about the future (what will I do after I graduate?). Our teens are busier than ever before!

Retreats are a wonderful opportunity to take time to escape for a short time from the loudness of our world, to grow in relationship with Christ and others in community, to listen prayerfully to God, and find peace and clarity. Let’s encourage our youth to dedicate time with our Lord, to release our worries, stress, and fears, and receive wisdom, peace, and Christ Himself through the various retreats that are coming up for our high school students and young adults. Need more information and registration forms? Contact Tasha Gordon at tasha@epiphanycatholicchurch.org or 502-245-9722 ex.19.
