This Lent

It’s Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. I love the date. 2/13/13 … Two One Three One Three. I think I’ll let that be my meditation for the day, the symbolic meaning of those numbers.

    Cardinal Francis Arinze speaks about the meaning of Pope Benedict’s resignation for the faithful. Beautiful meditation.

    • The Cardinal covered all the bases. With style. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

      Added the vid to my Best of Spirits YouTube playlist.

        It never occurred to me until he mentioned it that anyone would think BXVI would be maneuvering to hand-pick his successor. Shortly after listening to this, I saw comments to that effect at Twitchy. Also a very “right on” tweet about how we should brace ourselves for weeks and weeks of non-stop Catholic bashing.

    The world is a little poorer today as my friend, Kathy Smid, has left us. May light perpetual shine upon her.
