When things start looking like this:
It really hit the spot for both my husband and I. We’ve decided to start trying to offer up no meat on Fridays, which is a traditional Catholic custom (either that or offering up some other penance). Its purpose is a form of sacrifice for ourselves and reminder of the profound sacrifice Christ made on the cross on Good Friday. It’s a little participation in Jesus’ life. It’s amazing what a pathetic little offering it is but done in the right frame of mind, as a little offering of love to the Lord, I know it is very good and pleasing.
