The #LivingLent initiative will take place on Facebook and will involve short daily suggestions based on the themes of fasting, prayer and almsgiving, which are the three pillars of the Lenten season.
- Prayer and scripture suggestions (prayer intentions including those of Pope Francis, prayers of intercession and Lenten prayers)
- Opportunities for penance and fasting in our daily lives (fasting from gossip, fasting from negativity online, giving up certain foods for Lent, availing of the Sacrament of Reconciliation)
- Suggestions of charitable acts (donating to Trócaire and other charities; Donating your time by volunteering or helping out within your own family, school, parish; and behaving in a charitable way towards all those we meet)
People are invited to take part using the hashtag #LiveLent and are encouraged to share with their own followers how they are putting these suggestions into action in their daily lives.
