Good Intentions

Faith Focus
Is there somewhere I have been thinking about giving of myself, but haven’t acted on yet? What gets in the way of acting on my good intentions?


Living Catholic discipleship goes hand in hand with the prayer, fasting and almsgiving called for during this holy season.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation remains part and parcel of the Lenten season, yet we don’t have to wait until we go to confession

to examine our conscience. A regular examination of conscience keeps us on track, aware of what we have done and what we have failed to do. As Catholic stewards, we can conduct a modified examination of conscience to deepen our commitment to sharing our blessings.

Try this: Make a list of the causes to which you have donated time, talent or treasure. Then make a list of causes you intended to contribute to, but for one reason or another never got around to doing so. Perhaps Lent is the time to make good on your good intentions, to “give up” on putting off acting on them.
