This Lent as in previous years Father John Zuhlsdorf will offer daily “LENTCAzTS” throughout the penitential season.
In fact the first one begins today.
Here’s Father Z introducing the 2013 lenten audio reflections himself:
With this audio offering, I am beginning a series of daily 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.
True to form, Father’s first message contains a rallying call for Catholics to seek absolution:
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!
It is “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.
