Looking for an extra boost to your prayer life? Still wondering how to approach Lent? A while back, The Living Person partnered with Lifeteen over the idea of a daily Mass challenge. Lent is a wonderful time to add to your time in prayer, and if your daily routine has room for weekday Mass, there’s a perfect opportunity! Why not consider visiting Our Lord in the Tabernacle, soaking in the Word AND receiving the Eucharist beyond your weekly Sunday obligation?
If your first thought was “I could never find the time to go to Mass every day!” this just might be a challenge you should accept.
Before you decide whether or not to commit to this challenge, I encourage you to do these three things:
1. Take a few minutes (or days!) to ask if this is something God might be calling you to try out. Even if you go to Mass one more time than you normally would, it is worth it!
2. Write these quotes down and post them in a spot where you will see them throughout the day. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you the gift of wisdom as you contemplate the words.
“In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration and teach it to the faithful. It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering.” – Pope Benedict XVI
“For each Mass we hear with devotion, Our Lord sends a saint to comfort us at death.” –St. Gertrude the Great
“The Mass is the most perfect form of prayer!” – Pope Paul VI
