Shrove Tuesday

February 9, 2016


Blessed Shrove Tuesday!

Shrove: past tense of “shrive” (to go to confession and receive forgiveness).

Christ’s calming of the storm at sea
was more than a gesture of protection and comfort for the apostles;
it was a miniature of temperance
executed by a divine hand.
~Walter Farrell


Brethren and fathers, the season of Lent,
when compared to the whole year,
may be likened to a storm-free harbor,
in which all who are sailing together
enjoy a spiritual calm.
~St. Theodore the Studite

As we approach the holy season of Lent,
I invite you to explore some Lenten customs for the home.
Perhaps some of these might deepen your participation
in this blessed opportunity
for rest
from the storms of passion.
