When Lent Gets Inconvenient

When you make a Lenten commitment, you’re probably not thinking of all of the special circumstances and unforeseen events that are going to make that commitment… inconvenient.

A daily rosary might not be difficult… until that family vacation. Cold showers aren’t so bad… until that cold snap. Charitable giving feels great… until finances are tight.

Today, Fr. Mike invites us to let Lent interrupt us. Lent is inconvenient because Love is inconvenient. If we give more this Lent, we’ll get more than we ever have before.

(Production note: Father’s audio had some technical difficulties this week, so bear with us. Maybe even offer it up! 😜)
