That's right, guys, gals and non-binary pals! Today's Mardi Gras, translated to "Fat Tuesday!" This is the last time do indulge in all your delicious foods before making your commitment to give up something you enjoy for the 40 days leading up to Easter.
Tomorrow begins Lent with Ash Wednesday. What are you planning on giving up? Are you instead going to add practices?
As for me, I'm going to read additional spiritual writings, additional chapters of the Bible, and give up sweets.
I pray for everyone to have the necessary fortitude and to understand that this is an offering to God.
