I tried to select multiple boxes as I think part of the Lenten experience is following as many Lenten practices as possible. Each one is different and brings its own special gift of spirituality with it. For example, ashes on Ash Wednesday is a one time thing, however fasting is an ongoing Lenten thing. However, one thing that I recently learned is that fasting and almsgiving are both wings and that together help our souls fly.

Besides ashes on Ash Wednesday, I do a traditional Lenten fast: one normal-sized meal per day. My former parish priest taught us this fast. I like it. It teaches us how we might think we're self-sufficient, but we really depend on God. That hunger draws one into deeper prayer when one prays. I recommend it if you haven't done it before. Yes, you get hungry, but that's the point...to realize your dependency on God. If it gets to be too much, just have a little something to curb the hunger, like a piece of fruit or a few crackers & cheese...just a little something. Our priest also suggested that the men of the parish take it a step further: no meat during Lent (vegetarians figure out something different you can do) and no hot meals. It basically reduces the Lenten diet down to fruits, vegetables, cheese, nuts, bread, and the like. Surprisingly, there is still a lot you can do with that. I put things together like vegetable sandwiches. I started by buying them at Subway, then I started making my own similar to Subway. Now I invent my own versions. I also eat peanut butter sandwiches (no jelly) or salads. I don't like salads, so whenever someone offers me a salad outside of Lent, I just think, "that's penance food." I can eat 'em, but I don't like 'em.

I try to receive ashes, as well as give something up and say extra prayers. It is a combination of the things that are given as choices!

We should be able to put more than one option. I try to pray more often, give up favorite tv programs, go to staions of the cross and attend all of Holy Week services. On Good Friday our Youth Group performed for the first time last year the Passion in "Mime". It was so beautiful. You could have heard a pin drop. All ages attended. Many were brought to tears. An older lady I know who is Protestant went to see it with a friend from our Parish. She sent me an email to say it was one of the most beautiful, touching, presentaions of the Passion she had seen.

More than one: give something up, Ash Wednesday Mass, Stations of the cross, attend more Daily Masses during lent (for me this is nice, it forces me to take a break from the daily routine during my lunch hour).

More than one practice....ashes, and I give up something...usually related to technology. For example: I have given up listening to the radio. It gave me more time to pray on the way to work. By the time Easter had arrived I didn't feel compelled to automatically turn the radio on, and to this day I still don't. It was truly a time that I was totally in the present moment, and in quiet so I could better hear God's will for me. I prayed the rosary and put my thoughts in the dessert with Jesus. There were some incredible moments of uncertainty which made the celebration of Easter that much more fulfilling. This year I am focused on getting out of God's way and let him work through me. I look forward to the lessons I will learn from this Lenten season.

attend the daily Tiger Mass (7am) and have more quiet time before the Blessed Sacrament. Lent is truely a time to grow in Love with the real source of Love - God :)

Doesn't everyone do more than one? The entire week of Holy week is such a beautiful time - - I wouldn't want to miss any aspect, the ashes, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. More prayers. Aren't we all supposed to be striving to be Saints? Doesn't anyone realize that if God stopped thinking of each one of us for just a split second, we'd cease to exist!??! Truly --- it's how much He loves each of us.

I just want to be a humble servant & honestly have no pride if any single act during Holy week but why don't most folks just enjoy & want to participate in such a beautiful gift as Holy Week. The questions asked allow for ckg. just one & I'm bewildered. Why?

I attend mass more often. Not giving up but giving in... to God. Its all in how you view it.

There is no option to answer more than one!! I give up all sweets, try to attend Mass daily all Lent, go to Stations each Friday, give up all secular reading/music/tv, abstain from meat Mon-Wed-Fri, pray at least Vespers and Lauds daily, read 5+ minutes from Bible daily -- Lent is a wonderful time to grow closer to God!
