Lent 2016

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and that means Lent, that special time of the year for people who wish to grow closer to the Lord and to make tremendous strides in their spiritual progress. For us sober Catholics, we should embrace this season!

Matthew 16:24 “Then Jesus said to his disciples: “If anyone is willing to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
(via The Sacred Bible: Catholic Public Domain Version)

Bear in mind that taking up your Cross to follow Him could mean ending up like Him, too. Particularly in this day and age of the persecution of Christians.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have two excellent online resources. The first is their Lenten Resources page and the other is the USCCB Daily Mass Readings.

Praying Lent: an Online Ministry of Creighton University is an annual suggestion of mine for Sober Catholic readers.

Last, and certainly least, is Sober Catholic Lenten post Archives, every post I’ve ever done on Lent in nine years of blogging. I don’t know how often I’ll blog during the season, but as usual I’ll try and kick it up a few notches.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)

"The Recovery Rosary: Reflections for Alcoholics and Addicts"
