Limit Your Anxiety This Lent with a Social Media Fast

Are you struggling with anxiety and stress? Do you feel like social media is draining you emotionally and spiritually?

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary challenges us to consider stepping back from social media this Lent and fasting from those things that might be drawing us away from our relationship with Jesus.


Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.

Discover beautiful music from the CFRs and Fr. Mark-Mary’s book Habits for Holiness: Small Steps for Spiritual Progressboth available from Ascension.
