As we have and will continue to mention, Lent is coming. But it's now that we should all be preparing.
A traditional priest has put together the worksheet below for us to use (click for larger view and printing). It's simple, but it's a good tool to make our plans, to refer to throughout Lent, and to evaluate our progress when Lent ends.
Planning for Lent should be no different than planning for other things in life: plan, prepare, execute and evaluate! If we take the time to do it with our budgets, surely we should take the time to do it for our souls.
As always, consult your confessor or spiritual director.
