The advice given to Roman Catholics in Chicago by our Cardinal Archbishop was that Ash Wednesday, because it marks the beginning of Lent, should be observed this year as it has been traditionally, with fasting -- only one full meal, with two others that together are less than its equivalent -- and abstaining from meat. Mark your love for one another with a steak dinner on the day before, which is Mardi Gras and fitting as a day of celebration, or on Sunday, when fasting and abstinence aren't required.
I enjoy reading NorthAmerican's posts. So well-written and interesting except for the dull parts.--Nines

I've told this before, but here's my Ash Wednesday story:

One time I was in church on Ash Wednesday and the priest stood up and said "Today is Ash Wednesday and we observe this day by placing asses...I mean ashes...on our foreheads." I was probably 15, and I practically had to be carried out due to my convulsing laughter. My mom had strong opinions on appropriate behavior in church, but I never got in trouble for that, probably because she felt the same way inside.

A few years later, I was going to church with a friend on Ash Wednesday, and I told her that story as we walked. We got into the church and the priest (different church more than 1000 miles away) says "Today is Ass Wednesday, I mean Ash Wednesday..." and history repeated itself.

Love it.
Happy Mardis Gras!


NA- As for the cardinal, he could have just said "seafood is sexy." Ok, maybe not - I mean the cardinal saying that. Steak is not exactly romantic, is it?

I was wondering if there's any conflict of interest for the millions of Catholic/Christian Filipinos who will be screwing like rabbits tonight. Likely hours after washing off the ashen cross from their foreheads.

I'm guessing not many figurative fucks will be given.

Or real little bunnies?

I don't think you have to give up sex for lent.

I'm up to 12 or 13 "hi... what are you doing tonight?" facebook messages so far.

I should start replying "GOING TO CHURCH"

(I thought you were joking, Temp)

The mental picture of some Filipino festival where bunnies were being pursued as sex objects briefly did my head in, EMG.
