OTU #104 - Lent: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving


In this episode, Pat and Steve talk about prayer, fasting and almsgiving during Lent. Is Lent all about "giving something up"?

Pat is trying out a Lenten meditation called "In Converstation with God" by Francis Fernandez. Here's a link where you can find more information.

In a new "good student" segment, they discuss a new study from SUNY-Fredonia that suggests that listening to podcast lectures may be better than attending class! If you'd like to read the article, here it is.
