Step It Up for Holy Week

We are almost to the end of Lent!  You have almost made it!  Only Holy Week to go!  Are you looking forward to the Easter season where the Church celebrates and you no longer have to sacrifice your favorite food or drink or forgo that favorite activity?!

But like an athlete running a race, this final week of Lent is the time to kick it into high gear.  In this, the final stretch before the finish line culminating in Easter Sunday, we need to push ourselves just a little harder.  Maybe we can make a few extra sacrifices.  Perhaps we can spend a little bit of time in prayer in the Adoration Chapel.  Pray a rosary with friends or family.  Give up one extra treat.  We can work on purifying ourselves just a bit more for this final week.  May our final kick in this backstretch give us greater joy in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior on Easter Sunday!
