What Will You Give Up For Lent?

What are you going to give up for Lent?  What sacrifice will you make for 40 days?
Number One son and I had an interesting conversation about that.  He told me that Catholics who won't set foot in church will dutifully give up something for Lent!  Why?  Perhaps good ole' Catholic guilt that pushes them to do something in faith?
Instead of giving up something for Lent, how about adding something?  If you haven't been to church, how about attending Mass for the Lenten season?  Start by going to Ash Wednesday services on March 9.  Pick up the Missalette and follow along with the readings.  Sing a little.  Pay attention to the homily.  If you put something into it, you just might get something out of it.
