Below are reflections submitted through an anonymous online form answering the questions: What are you doing for Lent? Are you giving something up? Doing something extra? Our goal is to help people inspire each other.

Daily Rosary in the AM and Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3 pm. Trust prayer!

Abstaining from alcohol

2 of my favorite indulgences are Soda & Chips. Both I am abstaining from. Pray for me

I've given up eating out for lunch. Bringing my lunch to work instead or fasting. I will take the money I would have spent eating out and donate it at the end of Lent.

I am listening to Hallow’s amazing Lent Pray40 Challenge first thing every morning with my coffee and pups. I am also fasting from worry, a challenge for me indeed. I am placing any worrying thoughts in God’s hands.

Lent is my time to repent of my sinful ways and ask God for the strength to live better. I will sacrifice and attend Mass daily. On Easter Sunday I will bask and rejoice in Our Resurrecting Savior!!

I'm trying to reach out to some people who are lonely and not able to get out with a visit and/or a card, trying to be Christ to them.

Thinking about what not only goes in my mouth (like no meat on Fridays) but also what comes out of it like choosing my words before I speak.

No radio on my rides to and from work. Pray the rosary instead.

I've given up all social media and have been spending that time in the Word.
