Lent is upon us, and hopefully we are upon Lent. This season of prayer and penance is set apart by the Church to prepare us for Holy Week and Easter. As we know, through voluntary amendment of life, acts of penance, and works of charity, we prepare our hearts, similar to those who in serious prebaptismal formation contemplate their own burial with Christ.

BLESSINGS IN BLOOM: Root VegetablesThe United States Department of Agriculture replaced the food pyramid with MyPlate in 2011. MyPlate is part of a larger communication initiative based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans to help us make better food choices. MyPlate is designed to remind Americans to eat healthfully. It illustrates the five food groups using a familiar mealtime visual — a place setting. Each plate should be half-filled with vegetables and fruits. Based on age, sex, weight and physical activity, there is a MyPlate Plan link that can help guide us with regards to the recommended amounts of vegetables we should be consuming weekly.

While some of the mythos in this adaptation of various strands of Marvel Comics lore, as well as other considerations, make it unsuitable for kids, the film is tame enough to be possibly acceptable for mature teens.
