Sister Maxine  
This podcast is brought to you by A Nun's Life Ministry. Sister Shannon, here we are. Hard to believe that Lent is just around the corner.

Sister Shannon  
It is hard to believe. But it's that special time of the year when we get to focus again. And this time, I think because the experience the pandemic has made us in many ways more reflective, it's an opportunity to look at what's happening in our lives and make some choices and consider how we are members of a community of faith and stay connected.

Sister Maxine  
And that our faith is more important than ever. Although I will say the weather's gotten colder. So for Lent I was thinking maybe I should give up winter.

Sister Shannon  
That's a good choice. We are looking at an opportunity for the sisters to come together weekly to study the Old Testament reading from the Sunday Masses, because we give a lot of attention to the Gospels, but we often miss the power in those readings. And so I think that'll be a wonderful exercise for all of us to examine them and share what we see as God's message to us.

Sister Maxine  
Yes, there's an online Lent prayer group that I'm going to be participating in. So I'm looking forward to that too. To hear full episodes of A Nun's Life podcasts, visit the podcast page at anunslife.org/podcasts.
