Re: Catholics, What Are You Giving Up for Lent?

I am many years lapsed (and also pregnant, which would make me exempt from most of Lent), but when I was in high school, I would generally end up choosing to do more community service rather than giving up something. It was presented to us as an option - I guess as a sacrifice of time?

I also read recently that any talking about a goal, such as a Lenten sacrifice, on social media actually makes the person less likely to succeed in that goal. You'd think it would be a motivator, but no.
