Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Pope Benedict XVI has exhorted believers to face the Lenten season “not ... with an ‘old’ spirit, as if it were a heavy and tedious obligation, but with the new spirit of the one who has found in Jesus and his paschal mystery the meaning of life, and feels that everything must make reference to him.”

There are also some valuable reflections on the meaning of Lent over at utownchurch.

Amazing... it is Ash Wednesday there... and "Fat Tuesday" (ridiculous) here (5:20pm). :)

Blessed Lent,
