I apperceive Lent has started, but maybe I’m not the alone one who still appreciates a acceptable find. Besides, Lent is a continued season. These three finds ability be benign for you and your family.
The Xt3 Lenten Calendar
Who said calendars were aloof for Advent? The association at xt3 in the Archdiocese of Sydney, Australia, accept pulled calm a Lenten agenda for the sixth year in a row. It’s online or accessible as an app for your Apple or Android buzz or device.
Each day appearance a video, podcast, or accounting reflection, the circadian Gospel, and a Lent act, as able-bodied as images from about Australia to “tell the Lenten adventure with an Indigenous Australian voice,” according to the abbot website.
It’s a aboveboard array of access to Lent, and one that offers a altered angle than annihilation abroad I've found. Part of that is that I alive in the United States and I accept aught acknowledgment to an Australian Indigenous voice.
I'm aflame to use this to supplement my own Lent.
One Adoration a Day through Lent
This is a beeline website, no downloading bare (unless you appetite a PDF to print). I aboriginal apparent this a few years ago via Creighton University’s Praying Lent site.
The abstraction is that if you alone accept time for one prayer, actuality you go.
That’s all it is. One adoration anniversary day for Lent.
As addition who is generally tempted to try to backpack my Lent so abounding that I bake out by the aboriginal Sunday, there’s article ambrosial in stripping it all bottomward to this abstraction of one prayer. There’s article about too accessible about it.
But I apperceive from acquaintance that it’s NOT accessible to sit and focus and pray. (Not for me, anyway.) It requires a set of anatomy that too generally get baggy and disregarded in the assiduity of life.
The Lenten Adventure with Holy Heroes
My attempt at Lent as a ancestor is authoritative it article absolute for my kids. While I do accept a cardinal of books and added ideas, I was decidedly absorbed by the Lenten Adventure actuality hosted by Holy Heroes.
You assurance up and get emails on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays throughout Lent. They articulation you to the video and activity. On Ash Wednesday, the two minute video talked about why it’s alleged Ash Wednesday and what the acceptation of Lent is, alike for kids.

There are additionally a alternation of podcasts for anniversary installment, including a decade of the chaplet and an chapter of the “Glory Story” of Pope Saint John Paul II.
Now, I would be behindhand not to acknowledgment that this is sponsored by a company, and they do accept articles they’re promoting. Judging from what I’ve apparent of the chargeless resources, I ambition I had purchased the little roadmap set (and there’s still time, now that I anticipate about it). Alike if I don’t, though, what’s there is abundant for this year for my gang.
