Sunday is a day of rest. It is also a day of rest during Lent. That means all Lenten traditions, fasts, sacrifices, etc. get a reprieve on Sundays. Therefore, no 40 Acts of Kindness missions on Sundays. See you tomorrow for the next one.

@amadeo @Corbin5 The tradition of Sunday being a day of rest has gone, but when it comes to Lent, if you have vowed to give something up for Lent, you are permitted to indulge on Sundays during Lent. I am not sure whether faithful Christians follow this "day of rest during Lent" or not. I only heard about it a couple of years ago. I thought the whole season of Lent was Lent and not "take Sundays off from Lent". That makes no sense but it is said to be the Lenten tradition.

Seems like most folks are busy as can be on Sundays. I do not think I have experienced a Sunday that was a restful one. I should give it a try sometime.
