Going to Mass this morning on my way to work. I’ll spend the day with ashes on my forehead. Which will cause at least a few embarrassing moments. Someone will give a subtle sign that I have dirt on my forehead. I’ll nod and say it’s Ash Wednesday. Back in the day that was OK. Now it causes untold misery for the person who was so Culturally Insensitive as to not know every minor detail of every major religion. That’s so sad.
I still don’t know what I am doing to observe Lent. I do know, however, that I am not doing anything that will drive me crazy. Maybe this year I will opt for the Rosary again. It takes 20 minutes. I have an app on my phone so that when I have to, I can say the pray the Rosary while driving. I believe the Rosary is a powerful, powerful thing. Yes, the beads, as well as the prayer and meditation.
OK, I just made up my mind. And I just posted a photo of the Rosary I purchased a few years ago, which I will be using a lot.
I’m ready for 47 days of Lent. Let’s see where I shall be on the other side of it.
