Ash Wednesday sits just three days away- we need to examine ourselves. We see continually in the scriptures that physical healing is always secondary for Jesus. What is most important is our spiritual healing. So, we ask ourselves: What are my addictions? What are my sins? Where do I need the Lord most?
This lent, let your penance be specific to that place you struggle most- if you are prideful, assign yourself menial, humiliating tasks. If you struggle eating too much, fast. If you are addicted to the tv or social media, put the tv in the storage room or switch to a dumb phone for lent.
