Lent, give up the sacrificing

Ahhh, that lovely season of Lent is upon us once more and with it comes the tradition of giving something up, or sacrificing, if you will. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m all for religious reverence, personal examination, and small acts of humility. Somewhere along the way during all those years in private school, that’s how this practice of giving something up for Lent was described to me.
