Lent...

Has officially begun - that was really what the Carnivals of the last couple of days were about. So last night we attended a Eucharist and received the 'Imposition of Ashes' on our foreheads as a mark of the penitence that Lent is all about.

In former times it was about fasting, rather in the same manner as Ramadan is kept in Islam, though these days most Christians simply forgo some luxury they normally enjoy for the duration ...

I'm not saying - as I usually slip up somewhere down the line at least once!
