Lord, protect us in our struggle against evil. As we begin the discipline of Lent, make this season holy by our self-denial. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

  1. I'm really enjoying your website. We're introducing our children, ages 9 and 11, to Catholicism after having been lapsed Catholics for the past 11 years. This is our first Lenten season as practicing Catholics (the kids are entering RCIA.) I'm f'eeling encouraged by all of your recipes. Like, maybe I can support their faith formation and get them excited about what's going on at church. I can imagine them helping me to make bread and prepare special meals during the lenten season. Thanks so much for this work you are doing. My husband and I were raised Catholic but our families never seemed to bring the faith home like you suggest on this website. You give me hope. Blessings, Sarah
