Our friends at Rorate have a good post reminding us that today, which on my planet is Wednesday in the Octave of Pentecost, is also an Ember Day.
More on Ember Days, HERE.
Traditionally, these Ember Days were times for ordinations. Therefore, I very much like the last line in the Rorate blog entry:
[T]he purpose of the Ember Days outweighs everything else: priests. This week, during the Ember Days, we pray for many more.
