17_02_28_LENTCAzT_2017Father Z is offering his daily LentCazts again this year. You can subscribe with iTunes or visit his blog to benefit from these brief Lenten reflections. While you’re there, you could scroll down to the donate button and drop him a bob or two by way of appreciation. He’d no doubt also be grateful for an ‘Ave’ for his intentions:

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.

With this audio offering, I am beginning 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.

Read on and listen …

    Ash Wednesday today. May we all who love our Holy Catholic Church with undying passion, and suffer for Her (and our) many failings that mar Her lovely ‘face’, make this Lenten period an extra special time of prayer and fasting in reparation.

    “The fast of Lent has no advantage to us unless it brings about our spiritual renewal. It is necessary while fasting to change our whole life and practice virtue. Turning away from all wickedness means keeping our tongue in check, restraining our anger, avoiding all gossip, lying and swearing. To abstain from these things— herein lies the true value of the fast.”
    — St. John Chrysostom
