Wow! What an incredible response to our call for reflections on Lent and single life. We received hundreds of reflections. They were heartfelt, honest and wise.
We had a heck of a time choosing just 40 to publish. Many excellent posts went unpublished. You can read our 40 finalists here.
Sifting through your reflections reminded me of the beauty and wisdom of the CatholicMatch community. It is one of a kind. You made so many insightful connections between the Lenten journey and the journey of single life. Thank you for sharing them with CatholicMatch! We were encouraged, edified and entertained.
We will be awarding special prizes - including a Kindle - to the three most viewed Lenten reflections. So to the 40 finalists, here's your chance to do a little shameless self-promotion and up your odds! Feel free to share your reflection via Facebook, Twitter, email or your forward-happy mom. Whatever it takes!
We'll wait a week and then determine the top three reflections.
And we'll be publishing all 40 as a special CatholicMatch book. Stay tuned for more details - we're very excited about this.
