A Different Kind Of Lenten Devotion - Part II

Image Source: Wikimedia Commons)

Last week I passed on a Different Kind of Lenten Devotion that had been recommended by Father Thomas Heier, C.M.M., editor-in-chief and columnist of Leaves, a magazine published by the Marianhill Fathers. Since many of my readers responded favorably to that post and Father's suggestion, I prepared a daily chart that you may find helpful in living out that devotion this Lent. 



LIVING THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT THIS LENT

Love: We exhibit the virtue of charity, or love, by our unselfish devotion and care for God and our neighbor.
Joy: We live with joy when we recognize that true happiness comes, not from money or possessions, but from knowing and following Christ.
Peace: We are freed from worrying about trivial things because of the inner peace we experience with God in our hearts. We work and pray for peace throughout the world.
Patience: We demonstrate patience by treating others with thoughtfulness and tolerance. We know that we can overcome the temptations and sufferings of life because God is always with us.
Kindness: We live the virtue of kindness by treating others as we want to be treated.
Generosity: We demonstrate the fruit of generosity when we are share our gifts and possessions with others.
Faithfulness: We are faithful when we live out our commitment to the teachings of Jesus, the Scriptures, and the Catholic Church.
Gentleness: Gentle people act calmly and avoid actions that might lead others to anger or resentment.
Self-control: We exercise self-control by working to overcome the temptations we face and by trying always to do God’s will.
