Chapter 49 - Lent

Since few, however, have the strength for this, we urge the entire community during these days of Lent to keep its manner of life most pure and to wash away in this holy season the negligences of other times. RB 49:2-3

Benedict seemed to know that few people could really handle Lent year round, so he encourages his followers to at least keep the season of Lent especially pure.

Here are some areas that I am working on this year:

This LENT I am trying to spend more time
- listening to others.
- deepening my relationship with God.
- working at my own inner life and transformation.
- being more aware of Christ’s presence in every one and every thing.

I would love to hear what you might be doing this Lent. You can contact me, Sister Marilyn Schauble, and let me know if you wish. By sharing with each other we can encourage each other on our Lenten journey. Hope to hear from you.
