Looking back on Lent

I did not have a particularly fruitful Lent. You get out of it in proportion to what you put into it, and what I put into Lent this year wasn't what it should have been. The one upside is that my annual Eastertide backsliding will be relatively mild.

I mention this for fellowship sake, in case anyone else who likewise squandered the season happens upon this post in a despondent funk after reading blogs of more successful Catholics. We shouldn't feel good about piddling away Lent, but neither need we feel alone.
