Be sure that you make it to Mass at some point today. Sport those ashes.

If you're not sure what Ash Wednesday is all about, there are many places to find a ton of information about it.

For Lent this year I have been telling people not to just give something up, but to take something on. Pray a bit more every day, or if you don't pray every day, then start. One year, I went to adoration every day, and it was very beneficial. Of course it helps to have a perpetual adoration chapel a couple of blocks away.

What will you do this Lent? Give something up? Take something new on? How will you further your relationship with God? Leave a comment or post about it on the forums!
