The early Lent means that it is time to get in gear for the season already. The Register can help.

Our “Guide to Lent” is available online. It provides the basic information you need about Lent and its customs, and it has an excellent list of suggestions titled “What to give up.” Find it at under “Resources.”

Our “Passion Companion: Rosary Aid, Study Guide and Stations of the Cross” also continues to be popular in Lent. It features exclusive interviews with the director and star of the movie The Passion of the Christ and images from the movie. You can preview the Stations of the Cross from the booklet on the back page of this week’s Culture of Life section.

PS: There was so much to cover this week, we had to cut stories back more than usual. To get the full-length versions of this week’s stories, check out the online additions at where the coming issue’s stories are posted every Wednesday.
