What is your favorite Sorrowful Mystery?
Oh dear. Favorite Sorrowful Mystery. Well, they are Sorrowful, it’s hard to have a favorite, per se. However, I think the one that is the most meaningful to me is the Agony in the Garden. Jesus, praying to be spared the anguish and torture that was about to come. How many times a day do we ask God for "this cup to pass." But in the end He is able to say, "But thy will be done." Are we able to ask that as well?
What is your favorite Station of the Cross?
I think it would be Jesus meeting his mother. I have witnessed my own children suffer tragically and have been helpless. I could comfort them, hold them, cry with them, but I could not carry the cross for them.
Do you fast during Lent?
Only on designated fasting days. I have been nursing and/or pregnant for the last 8 years, and I don’t think that fasting is best for myself or the baby I’m nourishing.
What is your Lenten Resolution(s)?
As a family, we gave up soda, which was a nightly treat for us all. We are also starting to pray the Rosary every week, plus attend the Stations of the Cross.
Do you use Holy Water during Lent?
Not outside of church.
How many times do you go to Mass during Lent?
Surprisingly, not more than usual. We go to Mass every Saturday night, Ash Wednesday of course, and probably more during Holy Week.
