Today starts Lent. I’m trying to give up swearing. It’s going to be a long 40 days. While I do know that Sundays are technically feast days and we don’t have to observe Lent on those days, my sailor’s vocabulary is definitely a vice of mine of which I would like to thoroughly rid myself.
By the way, has anyone else noticed how you can instantly tell the Ashes-and-Palms Catholics now? They don’t know the new responses. It got a lot quieter after that group discovered that they don’t know what to say. Hopefully they are curious enough about the new translations that they come back! At least, that’s how these things work, right?
