Lent Starts Wednesday
I was going to write this up originally as my main article this week. But, bigger news more or less bumped this one down to less priority (though still somewhat urgent).
So, for those of you who have forgotten, or maybe were hoping to not remember, or just trying to not even think about, Lent begins this Wednesday, Ash Wednesday.
As a reminder, this is a day that we are called to fast and abstinence. I write about this every year, but here’s my best write up of it. In short, fasting is when you only have 2 small meals and 1 normal size meal. We are also to abstain from meat. Like I said, I go into more detail at the above link.
I’ll post what I’m giving up for Lent tomorrow or on Ash Wednesday. Obviously, Pope Benedict’s retirement is going to be taking up quite a bit more time.
