After a period of feasting ‘The time for Penance has come!’. It is Ash Wednesday and at Mass we will have received the Ashes which have been burnt and blessed from the Palms of the previous year. Each of us will then go to  Mother Abbess with our Lent Books ‘for approval’, and our lenten penances. This is a custom of ours and St. Benedict asked us to this during lent as extra spiritual reading.

We also have an extra day of fasting – wednesday’s and friday’s.

I was going to update my vocation journey but i am still having problems with technical hitches this end, sometimes the computer works sometimes it doesn’t get  connected at all. It is just luck at the moment!!!!!

Well i bid you all a very happy and fruitful lent – so who’s going to give up sugar, sweets etc….?
