We all know what to do during Lent: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. But do you know why we do it?
Isaac Huss is taking over Grotto’s Instagram Story to share how these basic spiritual practices can guide us through a transformative Lenten season.
We all have bad habits we want to work on. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but Lent gives us 40 days to step out of our comfort zone.
It isn’t always “fun,” but when we take time to pray, we are reminded that God is more important than anything else.
Fasting is hard for most of us, and it doesn’t mean food is bad or evil. Using fasting as a practice of self-control helps us learn to avoid other things in life, like sin.
We all think about money — how much we make, what we can buy with it. Almsgiving helps us detach from materialism and help people in need.
Lent is a time for shaking up our normal routines with the goal of assessing our attachments and making sure God is the number-one thing in our lives.
