It is Ash Wednesday. For those bound by the law, it is a day of fasting and abstinence.
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.
I am providing these again this year especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.
REMINDER: This evening at 6:30 PM CST, Ash Wednesday, I will say Mass for the intention of my benefactors, that is, people who have donated through the button on the sidebar or who have subscribed each month, and those who have sent items through my wishlists.
