This video was an answer to my prayerful consideration of what to "give up" for Lent. It seems it's not so much doing without as it is doing, period. Praying the Rosary, attending Mass frequently, helping the needy, simply spending time with the Lord in prayer and reading the scriptures - all of these things require giving up something to make room for them. And so I begin my fast from things I normally do(and enjoy) quite often, and devote myself, my time, and my belongings to my Lord Jesus Christ.
