Today is Shrove Tuesday, folks, which means it’s time to get shriven and party like Lent starts tomorrow. Which it does. As for me and my house, we’re having a pile of people over for pancakes, whipped cream, ice cream, cake, maple syrup, and rum. There will be much gorging of palates, and maybe, just maybe, fleeting display of female bosoms. Maybe.
In the meantime, the good folks at Aggie Catholics have put together a massive all-you-ever-wanted-to-know-about-Lent post, and it makes for edifying reading. If you haven’t yet decided how you will observe the season, this may give you some good ideas.
