And so we begin again a series of daily 5 minute podcasts for Lent. They are intended to give you a small boost every day, a little encouragement in your own use of this holy season.
I provide these especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.
Today is Shrove Tuesday, a day upon which many would seek to be “shriven” before the beginning of Lent. In other words GO TO CONFESSION!
Today is also called “Fat Tuesday”. When the discipline of Lent was more serious in the Latin Church, this was the last day you could eat animal fats, etc.
REMINDER: I am on pilgrimage in the Holy Land. I remember my benefactors in my prayers.
