Self-Examination Questions For Lent

  1. Am I consciously or unconsciously creating the impression that I am a better person than I really am ? In other words, am I a hypocrite?
  2. Am I honest in all acts or words, or do I exaggerate?
  3. Do I confidentially pass on to another what was told to me in confidence? Can I be trusted?
  4. Am I a slave to dress, friends, work or habits?
  5. Am I self-conscious, self-pitying, or self-justifying?
