Over the years, I’ve noticed that some people take a break for Lent on social media. Some of that is to avoid the dumpster fire that social media is and has been for a long time, and that’s understandable. On the flip side, some want to take a break from putting out content and concentrating on what they’re supposed to be concentrating on.
I’ve always had trouble doing that, for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that stuff happens during Lent and some of it needs to be commented upon. (Some doesn’t.) But I think the best thing to do is to put out stuff that is edifying, uplifting and makes for introspection. The one site that I can guarantee does that all year around is the Bossuet Project. The heart of the project is translating Bossuet’s Elevations on the Mysteries and, in addition to the elevations already there, during Lent this year I’ll be putting up “Elevations on Prophecies,” which deal with the subject in the Old Testament and how it relates to the new.
