Did your Lenten practice last year make you a different (better) person at the start of this Lent? Do you have something on which to build? Do you foresee your Lenten resolves this year assisting you in becoming a better person so that at the end you did not simply spend 40 days trying to be good like a youngster might in the days leading up to Christmas only to revert after the impetus to be good is over? If so, make it a prayer that God assist you in your endeavor. If not, rethink your Lenten resolve.

Today is a day of fast and abstinence. As you pass through the day, do not merely experience it but every time your body reminds you that you are not eating a handful of pepperoni as it would like, make it an occasion of prayer – even if it is lamentation.

I can't tell if I am a better person this Lent as a result of last Lent's practices. Certainly no-one has commented on it. I guess only God knows the answer.

I didn't know there was going to be a test on the first day.

Its 4:34 PM, I sure would love a handful of pepperoni right now!
