Lenten energy fast

by | Feb 26, 2013 | Formation

No, this is not a new power drink. It is one diocese’s response to the question “What are you doing for Lent?”

EcoCatholic writes, “If you are striving to become greener over the course of the 40 days, the archdiocese of Cincinnati has constructed a Franciscan Lenten energy fast calendar, offering spiritual reflections and scripture passages relating to creation, but more than anything, simple and practical ways to lessen the energy wasted each day.The calendar, created by the St. Francis Pledge Team at St. Monica-St. George church in Cincinnati, focuses each week of Lent on a section of Francis’ “The Canticle of the Creatures”: week one, beginning Ash Wednesday, Brother Sun; week three, starting Wednesday, Brother Wind-Air; and week six, Sister Mother Earth.

With 29 days left in Lent, there’s still time to join the energy fast, or even revisit past days’ reflections and conservation suggestions.
