Lent: Not on Automatic Pilot
Joe Paprocki, catechist, family man and National Consultant for Faith Formation, describes the pillars of Lent as exercises toward holiness. “Lent is 40 days for a reason—holiness is a habit, and habits take time to take hold.” Lent is a beginning: to change habits for new ones and live from them usually takes longer than 40 days.
[At the end of Mr. Paprocki’s reflection readers can use a link to participate in the U.S. Catholic survey about ways people celebrate Lent.]
