Catholic songs and movies for lent can help enhance your spiritual experience this Lenten season. Let’s examine: what exactly are you giving up for lent? There’s so much to give up, but is there some to gain as well? I wonder, what exactly would make it a true challenge?
For me, it’s always the music I listen to or the TV that I watch. I oftentimes enjoy songs from the ’80s ’90s and ‘2000s that don’t always jive with my Catholic faith. Either the lyrics go against it, or the artists themselves don’t lead a public Christian life. So for this lenten season, I’ve decided (among other things) to give up that “bad” music and TV. But I plan to gain something as well.
My plan is to only incorporate Catholic songs and movies for lent, this means I will only listen to and watch as many Catholic and Christian tv shows, movies, and music as I can. Though I do plan to limit how much, I will resolve to take a break from listening to and watching the worldly secular side of the entertainment industry. Here’s a short list of songs I intend to listen to and movies I intend to watch.
Note, not all of the following are Catholic songs and movies for lent. Some are Christian but I will try my best to only focus on Catholic songs and movies for lent
I pray that these catholic songs and movies for lent (not all of which I’ve watched but intend to watch) will help enhance your faith. Lose the secular side of the things we use for entertainment and gain a more spiritually enhancing side.
Note there are plenty of songs not on this list but these are my first few go-to songs on a rainy day or when I need Christ’s presence to be felt in my life. I really hope this helps you get some good prayer time and family time this Lenten season!
