Remember to check out this video on how to SET-UP YOUR PROFILE SHEET BEFORE THE GAME EVEN BEGINS! (you can always find this video in the INFORMATION PAGE at MAIN LINKS------->)
ALSO: Remember to keep track of you Lent Challenge! Can you beat Star Lord with his struggle with chocolate? He who fails LEAST wins! (Of course, don't forget the more meaningful sacrifices, prayers and charities. This challenge is just for fun.)1.) Scriptural Readings: Break chapter 11 of THE PROVERBS into small chunks (about 2-3 verses in size each). You only need this one chapter over the break, because it is so dense with wisdom, but feel free to read other parts of the Bible if you finish it quickly.
Read one chunk per day. You must aim to have read them before we play on Wednesday. There is A LOT of wisdom in these passages, so read carefully.
ALSO: SHARE YOUR FAVOURITE VERSE (from THIS reading) WITH US NEXT TIME!
2.) Prayer: Keep a log of your prayer life. At least 10 minutes of prayer a day. This can include:
- Normal 'talking to God' prayer.
- The Rosary
- The Jesus Prayer
Remember to rate how focused you were during prayer. If it was good, it counts as a full 1, if it was so-so, give yourself a half, and if you were not focused at all, a 0.
3.) The Simulator:
Question: So... where IS Lent in the Bible? How would you answer this question?
4.) Keep notes on Righteousness. How well did you follow through on your faith during the week?
What was main victories. Defeats?
5.) Going to Mass: If you received the Eucharist during Mass you have your soul fully restored. If you are prevented from receiving the Eucharist because of a mortal sin, well, then... get off your behind and go to confession!
6.) Have profile sheet, dice (two six-sided dice), pencil and eraser ready.
