Thank you so much for taking part in this year’s first “UD Lenten Challenge.” What a successful first try it was. We distributed hundreds and hundreds of our purple challenge bracelets and we had many follow us on Twitter as well as this blog page. Thank you all for taking part and for your support with this new project.
My prayer is that you were able to stay committed to your goal and that your season of Lenten was a fruitful time for you to grow closer in your faith.
Some inspriing words by Matt Maher as we prepare to begin the Triduum this Holy Thursday evening. May we remember what it is that Christ has done for all of us and may we be reminded how important the community of believers is to out faith.
Today, March 25th, is the Feast of the Annunciation of Mary. May we strive to be like Mary, especially during this Holy Week. May God bless us with the grace and patience to say “Yes” to that which we are called to do with our lives. May we be courageous yet gentle like Mary, our Mother.
You've made the commitment to challenge yourself during this Lenten season to grow deeper in your faith. Check out this blog for daily inspiration to help you reach your goal.
