Can You Start Over in Lent?

For most of us, Lent began two weeks ago. How’s it going, fourteen days in?

This was going to be the Lent you fasted between meals and avoided desserts.

This was going to be the Lent you volunteered at the hospital or the food shelf.

This was going to be the Lent you read Give Us This Day or the Bible each morning.

You were going to go to daily Mass.

You were going to be more kind with your coworkers, more patient with family members.

Can you start over in Lent? Can you forget the first two weeks, beginning again today as if they never happened? Do you get a second chance?

The question answers itself.

Blessed Wednesday of the Second Week in Lent, everyone
