Acknowledging the perfect joy of suffering in Christ, but having a little fun along the way.

I have to admit: I love Mardi Gras! Not that thing on Bourbon Street, but the honest-to-goodness Catholic celebration. I love the license to eat a bunch of fatty-yummy foods, the get-it-out-of-your-system attitude and the sheer joy of having a day-long party. Yeps, tomorrow is fasting, prayer, penance, and ashes, but today: we party!
So, eat ice cream sundaes for dinner, throw on some tacky beads, pick up donuts for the office staff, relax tonight with your favorite ale. Enjoy!
