Today is Ash Wednesday


Recommended Posts

I was raised very strictly Roman Catholic. Today is Ash Wednesday, and I made a point of eating something with meat in it as an act of rebellion, something I plan to continue doing each Friday during Lent. I'd love to get to the point where I just don't care and don't notice whether I eat meat that day or not. Apparently that isn't going to happen this year though. Can anyone else relate?

Replace Lent with the Bajoran Gratitude Festival from Star Trek.  Write your troubles on a renewal scroll then burn it to be rid of them; and greet everyone with “Peldor joi.”

And binge watch Star Trek reruns!

I never understood the reason for lent anyway, Why would a god care about what you ate on a few specific days during a specific time of the year but not what you ate during the rest of the year?

 

Sounds like this god has a severe case of OCD.

The Catholic church came up with a lot of this stuff, and they have a LOT of OCD!  God complex!  Etc.  Etc..
