Lenten Devotions/Practices Question

Our last poll was before the start of Advent and we recently had a discussion question up about Confirmation names. So, I thought it was time for a new topic.

What are your favorite Lenten devotions or practices?

Please leave a comment here or if you like write a post on your own blog and leave a link.

Over the years, I've come to like Stations.

This past Friday evening, I was flipping through my three different Stations booklets that I keep in my car (makes sense, right?), trying to decide the version I like best ... and seriously contemplating locating a church that adheres to that version - a regrettable "please yourself!" mentality.

Saint Alphonsus Liguori's isn't my favorite, although this refrain is touching: "I love You, Jesus my love; I repent of having offended You. Never permit me to offend You again. Grant that I may love you always; and then do with me what You will." I hope, true.

My favorite text may be of local origin? From Barton Cotton publishers, in the mid-60's, with imprimatur from the archbishop of Camden, NJ, "The Way of the Cross," view a couple of pages online (also here, same text).

This version adds a "15th station," the Resurrection, that not everyone welcomes, but imo, it's all good.

No matter the text, the Stabat Mater, preferably a cappella and in English! - do I have to mention that?! - after every station is imperative!

Blessed Lent to you.
