Shrove Tuesday evening, shooting the breeze with the neighbors, I noticed that one of my neighbor’s trees is just now exploding with Lenten color, just in time. I know that flowers are not very Lenten, you know, in Church. But these are outside editions because, how can you not give flowers to the Immaculate Conception.
On that note, a package arrived with hand-made Rosaries to bless and give out on my rounds.
I’m grateful. The Lord’s Little Flock thanks you.
And… and… today, Ash Wednesday, with Masses all over the back ridges of these Appalachian Blue and Smoky Mountains, there’s time for extra Rosaries. Hey! A Lenten resolution: extra Rosaries.
I mean, did you notice? The world and the church and all of us need prayer. And… Go to Confession!
