Here are two great resources I recommend for Lent.

Firstly, Fr Robert Barron is offering a series of short daily meditations to span the season. If you haven’t seen his Catholicism DVD series, you really should. If you have seen Catholicism, then you already know how eloquent Fr Barron is, and how conversant he is with Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.

You can sign up at, but hurry. I think registrations close today.

Meanwhile, over at the The Gregorian Blog, Tom Hoopes has composed a useful list of suggestions for cyber-fasting this Lent. Read his blog post to get the detail.

1. Moderation instead of fasting on Facebook.

2. Turn off your phone.

3. Use paper in church.

4. Choose group entertainment.

5. Uproot your ear buds.

6. Give up video games.

7. Unplug the Internet.

8. Give up your extra technology for Lent.

9. Read real books for Lent.

10. Call people.
