Our church had a wonderful Ash Wednesday service.
Father Daniel graciously helped with the responses in Mass, and he delivered a talk that related the Lenten season to alchemy- an amazing connection that took our already deep Ash Wednesday to an even deeper level!
Today's only the second day, and I wanted some coffee creamer, but due to my own ban on sugar for Lent, guess what I'm not having in my coffee...!
The doubled Bible reading is going well; generally, it's two chapters in the Old Testament and two in the New, complete with reading all the surrounding study notes.
One word of advice: anything that one gives up for Lent, make sure it's something within your ability to do. Don't do something that's going to harm you or stress you out too much as that's likely to backfire.
