Have A Holy Daring This Lent

Live Strong! Pray hard! Detach! Lent is our training time to hop up a few more steps towards sainthood.

A little inspiration from my bff, St. Teresa of Avila:

"God deliver us, Sisters, when we do something imperfect from saying; "We're not angels, we're not saints." Consider that even though we're not, it is a great good to think that if we try we can become saints with God's help. And have no fear that He will fail if we don't fail. . . The presumption I would like to see present in this house, for it always make humility grow, is to have a holy daring; for God helps the strong and He shows no partiality."

The Way of Perfection, Chapt. 17, pg 98.

I'm fasting from this blog for the next six weeks. I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone after Easter Vigil!
