[vanity] Hope you all make a good Lent [Catholic Caucus]

Posted on 02/16/2010 7:59:32 PM PST by markomalley

Well, I've got Volume II of my Breviary all placemarked. I've got the sweets put away. I pigged out tonight because tomorrow the fast begins. And if I'm going to start going to Mass at 6:30 AM, I need to hit the rack now.

It is my fervent prayer that each and every one of you make a good Lent this year and that the peace of Our Lord fill your hearts during this time.

I'll catch up with you all in a few weeks.

I don’t do it any more, but I remember it.

God bless you all and give you strength in your sacrifices.

I am a funny (not humorous per se) ex-Catholic in that I see the Church as a beloved sister with whom I do not associate but care deeply about her well-being.

Please save your requests that I rejoin — I have numerous reasons for leaving (none “personal” — all theological).

But I do admire (and envy a bit) you faithful.

Have a blessed Lent and I look forward to Easter when we celebrate His Rising.
