During Lent, as we are making room for God

Week 3

this week, let's think about giving up

avarice (greed), concentrating instead on charity (generosity)

Charity or Generosity: Going beyond simple money. Letting others get the praise or credit, giving without expectation, not recognizing a “fair share.”

Avarice or Greed:  There are least 3 forms of Greed:

  1. An obsessive desire for more material goods & power
  2. A fearful need to store up surplus goods for some vaguely defined time of want
  3. A desire for more earth goods for their own sake.

Week 2

this week, let's think about giving up 

lust, concentrating instead on chastity.

Chastity: Discretion of sexual conduct according to one's state in life; the practice of courtly love. Cleanliness through cultivated good health and hygiene, and maintained by regraining from intoxi-cants. To be honest with oneself, one's family, one's friends, and to all of humanity. Embracing of moral wholesomeness and achieving purity of thought through education and betterment. The ability to refrain from being distracted and influenced by hostility, temptation or corruption. All with the help of the Holy Spirit, NOT through your own works.

Lust, or lechery (carnal - luxuria) is an intense desire. Lust could be exemplified by the intense desire for money, food, fame, power, or sex.

In Dante's Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful thoughts and feelings. In Dante's Inferno, souls with unforgiven lust are blown about in restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control to their lustful passions in earthly life.

 Week 1

 this week, let’s think about giving up

gluttony, concentrating instead on temperance.

Temperance is the espousal of moderation, marked by personal restraint. It has been studied by religious thinkers, philosophers, and more recently, psychologists. Temperance is generally defined by control over excess, so that it has many such classes, such as abstinence, chastity, modesty, humility, prudence, self-regulation, forgiveness and mercy.

Gluttony, derived from the Latin gluttire meaning to gulp down or swallow, means over-indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items to the point of extravagance or waste. In some Christian denominations, it is considered one of the seven deadly sins – a misplaced desire of food or its withholding from the needy.
