What was the most meaningful part of the Ash Wednesday Liturgy?
“For me, the most meaningful part of the Liturgy was hearing about Pope Francis’ theme for this Lenten season. I think that the theme of listening is especially prevalent in our society. We are all so detached and much more interested in our electronic devices than having a conversation with one another. I am definitely going to try and be more present especially during the Lent season.”
What are you giving up for Lent?
“In keeping with the theme of this Lenten season, I am going to give up social media. I think that giving up social media for Lent will be a good exercise and will help me see if this is something I will be able to practice on a more permanent basis.”
What was the most memorable thing you gave up for Lent and how was your experience?
“I gave up Netflix three years in a row and I truly enjoyed the experience. It was difficult at first, but after a week I got used to it and in the end, I was able to spend my free time doing other things like spending time with my friends and family.”
