I can't believe my first lent went by so fast. I am pretty proud of my lenten studies/offerings. Sure, I could have prayed more and been more contemplative, but I stuck to my fasting, I went to a retreat, went to a couple of friday services and did some community service. Not bad for a not-yet-catholic. This week is going to busy, not only am I going to 3 masses, but I also have to sing at those masses and get confirmed. Monsignor also wants us to validate our marriage before saturday. We also have play date plans almost every morning and afternoon. I am doing my first confession saturday! I can't wait to feel the weight lifted off my shoulders. It's a heavy weight, multiplied by 30 years. There is a man in my class that is doing his first confession after...70 years. I will try to go before him.
