Wow, what a great way to start lent. This really showed me the purpose of my sacrifice. Out goes the social media and now it is time to focus on a rosary a day and more quality time with family.

This is good, but I do wish Bruce, when you flag u p repeats of what your saying, you leave them flagged up to give time for me to put pen to paper. I’ve started a note book yesterday. What was said about giving up was very helpful.
