Lent 2024 Anonymous 02/10/2024 (Sat) 18:17:25 No.26422
How are you brothers preparing for the season? Have you already promised to follow Jesus as you had not dared to before? Have you renounced the works of the Evil One to enter the Father's house with Jesus? What's keeping you?

>>26424 You are not supposed to leave something that is already a sin.
Do protestants celebrate Lent? Born and raised Catholic I really have no clue about what they do for most things. Looking online it seems the answer is "it depends" but I'd like some more information than that. I should learn about Protestants in general. What even is a Baptist? I've only posted to this board once like 3 years ago so sorry for not lurking but I don't plan on being a regular. >>26422 Saying a rosary during my commute and also really for real no fapping for good this time.

>>26435 I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with using a season of prayer and fasting as time to rid oneself of habitual mortal sin, as long as he doesn't intend to take up the habit again as soon as Lent is over.
>>26422 I'm struggling a lot with personal issues but still trying to do what I can for this time of the year. >bible readings Whenever I feel down I try to avoid sin and read passages to comfort myself >praying to Our Lady I used to be a very devoted prayer of the Rosary but sadly I couldn't keep the habit, so I pray with fervor when I feel it in my heart because I don't think praying while feeling "obligued" would please the Lord and Our Lady (it's more complicated than that but it has to do with faith crisis, mostly). >fasting I dedicate every moment of hunger to the Lord, eating once or twice a day >no masturbation Self-explanatory I pray that all my brothers in Christ grow spiritually and in virtue, may all our brothers please the most high during this time of the year with their acts of penance, meditation and virtue. Please, if you're reading this, I beg you to also pray for me, a filthy sinner going through hardships but still carrying my crosses and keeping my hopes alive, I give thanks to the holy trinity and the divine love of Our Lady for never abandoning me. Jesus Christ be praised.
