25 Simple Things You Can Do This Lent To Grow Closer To Christ

by Lent, Prayer

This week we will begin the Lenten season. It is a beautiful time to grow in closeness to God and to others. This time can, if we are willing to cooperate, be 40 days of immense spiritual and personal growth.

While the specific penances we choose are not ultimately our focus – in the end, it is always about our personal encounter with the passion and mercy of the Lord Jesus – making the effort to change certain habits or attitudes in our lives can be our humble gifts, like the 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread to offer to the Lord. It’s not much, but the Lord is excellent when it comes to multiplication.

As such, we have put together this great list of possible things that you can work on this Lent. Don’t forget to vote on favorites below!
