More Questions For Lent

Lent is a time for self-examination.  Here are some more good questions to ask yourself from Gustave Francois Xavier Delacroix de Ravignan (1795-1858), a French Catholic priest and author.

Whither goest thou?

Where is thy soul?

Is it in peace?

If it is troubled, why?

How art thou fulfilling the duties of thy position?

What are they?

What effort hast thou made to amend thy disposition, and conquer thy sins?

Hast thou been faithful to the light God has given thee?

What means shouldst thou use, especially with regard to thy most besetting sin or temptation?

Hast thou fought against it?

Hast thou thought about it at all?

What hast thou done with the circumstances of the last month?

Have they wrought God’s work in thee?
