LENTCAzT 2019 – 00 Shrove Tuesday: Prepare for this transforming season

And so we begin again 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 provide these especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.

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!

Today is also called “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.

 

REMINDER: Tomorrow evening at 6:30 PM CST, Ash Wednesday, we will have Mass at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff WI.  A live video stream should be available.

    Thanks, Father! Great stuff, about Lent being a sacrament. “Lenz” is the poetic word for spring in German.

  3. Thank you once again Father for these Lenten podcasts.
    Taking notice of your comment on how fasting is related to the First Sin being that of eating something forbidden. Good one!
