A Journey in Lent: The Common Practice

    In this third week we continue our Journey in Lent.
    When I was young and my family was going to travel on vacation, we had some common practices in order that the trip be more memorable. These became a tradition for each vacationing trip. Perhaps your family had or has a routine you follow for traveling together.
    A common practice associated with our journey in Lent is the giving up of something like a certain kind of food, a favorite TV show, or something that you really enjoy.
    On one occasion a person even told me that he was going to give up cursing for Lent. Really?!
