Spring cleaning

As I am sure you know, the word 'Lent' was used to refer to the arrival of Spring which often coincides with the arrival of the Penitential Season now upon us. "Spring cleaning in February?", you might ask-well, an awful lot of people do what they refer to as 'spring cleaning' in January (quite possibly to take their minds off what many might agree can be one of the most stressful times of year), and a few would argue that the lovely weather in Britain has heralded the early arrival of Spring, but I digress-as you may have noticed I am trying to tidy up this blog in the hope that I may motivate myself to devote myself a little more consistently to it. With the word 'little', in mind (but not at all insignificant), as a footnote to my suggestion the other day, I would like to second John's suggestion to look at Recta Ratio for some good Lenten reading.

In need of Lenten reading material?

Don Marco's posts from last Lent should help you out.

Where has the time gone?

Yes, the first post of 2008, and it has taken me this long to do so! Well, as I may have mentioned before, I am trying to prioritise things and haven't exactly managed to crank out much. To be very honest, I don't really see the point in doing so as a lot of bloggers say the same thing-yes, they say it in different ways I know, and this is useful-but I don't see much point in providing more 'dithering material' as it were for people to waste their time with. Instead, I will try at least to point you in the right direction of some interesting or profitable reading matter on and off the internet.

Case in point: With all the blogs around the world rattling on about the Good Friday Prayer, I indeed understand why it is an issue dear to many hearts (including my own), but see no need to issue a statement on how and why I feel about it-there's time better spent by both of us praying.

Oh, and just to re-assure you, I am going to try to produce less posts about the Liturgy-again, something which there is an awful lot of about online, and therefore not needing any further commentary from yours truly.

Happy Lent! God bless!
