LENTCAzT 2018 01: Ash Wednesday – Unto dust thou shalt return.

Each day during Lent I’m once again offering 5 minute podcasts to give you small boost, 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 Ash Wednesday.  Lent begins.  The Roman Station is Santa Sabina on the Aventine Hill.  Today is a day of both abstinence and fasting.

    Thank you Father for this sobering talk today.

    Regretfully, it has snowed us out this morning. So the trip to our FSSP parish will have to wait until Sunday. So this evening it’s off to the local OF parish for ashes.

    Our server is not working properly, Fr. Z cause the LENTCAzT only has 6 seconds of the talk. Hoping for better downloads tomorrow. We look forward to them each year.
