Lent, Ash Wednesday • The Catholic Church requires fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday and that we abstain from meat on those days and all the Fridays of Lent. Everything else is up to us. Depending on what we give up, we might arrive at Easter being being skinnier, healthier, better-rested, or all sorts of other wonderful outcomes. But there is one great outcome we should all strive for. Did this Lent help you to love God and love your neighbor more at the end than you did at the beginning? Let's make Lent all about love.

Going Deeper: Start by thinking of one thing to do that will help you be more loving, or one thing that keeps you from love that you can stop doing. Try to add an additional challenge each week of Lent.
