During these 40 days….

….I will abstain from watching television or movies

….I will attend a weekday mass at least once per week

….I will follow the Lenten Daily Retreat at The Spiritual Exercises Blog hosted by a group of US Jesuits.

It’s not that I think watching TV is bad or even particularly wasteful of my time. I don’t watch that much, and it’s only in the evenings with my family.  But I need some peace and quiet to enter fully into this season.  Some space to read and reflect.  It’s also for this reason that I will get to an additional mass each week.   The daily Lenten retreat will give my mornings some focus and start my day in meditation and prayer.
