As We Prepare for Lent

Tomorrow the season of Lent begins. By our penance, we say no to ourselves and yes to God and others. This reverses the power of sin, by which we say yes to ourselves and no to God and others.

A perfect Lenten practice is to speak up even more for unborn children. Lent calls us to greater love and less selfishness. When we defend the unborn, we defend people who cannot thank us, and who don’t even know we are defending them. This makes our efforts even more sacrificial and selfless. At times, we will suffer ridicule from others for our pro-life stand. To sacrifice our comfort, our pride, or our popularity is a beautiful Lenten sacrifice that brings us closer to the Lord, and brings the unborn closer to safety.

    The Vibram Five Fingers (VFF) have a thin rubber sole but no cushioning, thus when you go for a run in the VFF it will feel similar to running barefoot, however you will have thin sole that will protect your foot from glass and small rocks. I would recommend that you start off slowly in the VFF and stay on grass, increasing your mileage gradually.
    The VFF also have a plastic draw string on the back of the shoe to tighten the shoe. The first few times I ran in the VFF I used the string to tighten the shoe, but eventually I realized that I had no need to tighten the shoe, in fact tightening the
    shoe only made it more uncomfortable.

    But other people believe all Rolex Replicas Submariners without crown guards deserved the same distinction because they weren’t introduced until 1958. In the 60s, the 1780 was the first Rolex Submariner to carry a date complication, marking the transition of the Rolex Submariner to a fashion accessory.

    Sometime in the early 1960s, Rolex discontinued the use of radium paint for the luminous indices, switching to the safer Tritium-infused paint.
