Honey, you don't have to be Catholic to observe lent. Maybe read up on it and learn what it's all about. :-)

I think you have already done your part. You are a wonderful hard worker and deserve to be treated right. May God bless you Lauren !

I know hugs don't fix anything but if I could I would give you one right now.

Lent is celebrated by all Christian denominations, but it does seem like the Catholics are the branch that give up things more than the other denominations:)

Hey, guys, I didn't have any intent to say anything mean. I was just giving her some information. I attend a Cumberland Presbyterian Church, not anything like a Catholic church, and I just was trying to let her know in a sweet way that Catholicism is not the only religion that acknowledges it. I thought she might want to google it and read up on it. I certainly didn't mean anything negative about it. Tic_Tac. if, for some reason it came over that way, it was not my intent, honey, and I apologize.

No, it's fine. :) my church fasts in January though.

You know you can do whatever you gave up on Sundays, they aren't part of the 40 days of Lent.

What I'm giving up is not a "tangible" food or thing. It's a mind set. I'm a diabetic and haven't been taking care of myself (i.e., been forgetting and not paying enough attention to taking my insulin, etc.) My body is a temple of God. I need to do my best to take care of it and am going to give up my lazy ways of thinking & take better care of myself.

No way! I'm not stopping that.

I think it's the least I could do for Lent. It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. It was either that or give up eating liver.

Nothing. I didn't ask anyone to die for me. Why should I have to make a sacrifice for some Bronze-Age schizo with a god complex?
