Lent 2016 began yesterday

Sandwich making habits
Even something as trivial as making a sandwich is one of our personal rituals. Do you put peanut butter on one or both slices?


Lent 2016 began yesterday.

Didn’t make it to Mass.

Didn’t grow up Catholic.

The better our excuses, the easier it is to fail.

i had really good excuses yesterday.

Rituals become rituals because humans need these things to help them to not forget what is important (assuming they say Lent is important).





On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

This website is about our spiritual health. To leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s career health website, click here.
