The fifth Sunday of Lent will be here in just hours. My Lenten journey has been a disaster. I have been working overtime like nobody's business. Homework never stops. Not to mention nine children, a wife, a home...
Anybody struggling or am I the only schmuck?
Every year I construct elaborate plans to pray earnestly, attend mass daily, do more spiritual reading, go to confession frequently, and just generally acheive adequate holiness for ascension. It never seems to happen.
I'll tell you what - you pray for me, and I'll pray for you. Maybe we can get this together. In the meantime, join me in a little sackcloth and ashes. MERCY!
