Herbs

At the risk of sounding like I down ampalaya juice for breakfast every day (LOL), here's my unsolicited advice:

Perhaps my Catholic friends would consider not announcing their sacrifices for lent. It makes them sound like complaints, and their intention, less noble.


And I hope these sacrifices don't make you grumpy. But if they do, I'll try to understand :-)

abs bitter herbs. :)

pero tama, i think it would be better for everyone not to parade each other's beliefs. if they are sacrificing for lent, they should do so in silence.

Eon -- and it's funny how when atheists do the parading, the religious raise major hoots:

Jay -- it's nice to know Father and I have something to agree on, lol

Perhaps others will also consider that announcing your intentions to people creates a community that can hold you to account and keep you going. Works for other commitments too, not just Lent.
