BUT you can also take up something NEW! has launched its annual Lent Calendar for 2012!

The Xt3 Lent Calendar is a Catholic resource suited for youth groups, parishes, schools, or for one’s personal Lenten journey. Each day you will be provided with a new feature, including the daily mass readings, scripture quotes, and a small act of penance that you may chose to add to your Lenten commitments. In addition, Xt3 will provide a Lent or Easter themed multimedia feature every day, including inspirational short films, reflective podcasts, apologetics, Lent trivia, information about WYD2013, and much more!

The first calendar door opens today, Ash Wednesday, 22 February 2012.
