Since Tuesday is busy for us, we will have our pancakes for dinner tomorrow, Monday.
Care to join in? Anthony ( youngest son) and Gerry ( dh) are making pancakes, to serve with fruit, ice cream and syrup. Hopefully, when I and the others get home from work, the pancakes will be ready!
This feasting is in preparation for the fast and abstinence of
Ash Wednesday and for Lent.
Lent is a time for reflection. A time to do things differently, to think more of spiritual matters, to pray, to attend an extra Mass or two, to ensure we make amends and attend Reconciliation. to re-orient ourselves spiritually.
Whether this be by “giving up” foods or activities or by adding new spiritual practices or reading into our days and weeks, is a matter of discussion here.
Daily we will be reading the reflections from Lent and Easter Wisdom from Pope John Paul II. Well, I hope we will – I have been told that the book will arrive on February 23!
We will look at Lent as part of the liturgical year with activities from
100 Activities Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Anthony will probably have some fun ( and hopefully learning – although one can’t be too sure with Anny!) with this book.
And there are more Lenten ideas here.
