No apologies needed. I was jesting - had a friend looking
at her calendar and said how early Lent was this year. I have
not looked so don't really know. I think I was lamenting
the loss of Christmas tide. The day after Christmas the
tree is out on the curb for trash pickup. People in such a
hurry, going no where. We need to stop and just enjoy,
relax and take in the beauty. Christmas tide of course is
the time between Christmas day and Epiphany, when the
Orthodox celebrate the gift giving, which makes more
sense, in a way, since that is Magi's arrival (at least
in some sense for we do not know the exact days of
any of these things.)
Lent - yes, the ashes on the forehead. I so remember
the days, which are still around.
Liturgy. A definition in theology was something akin to
"A complexus of signs making the unseen, visible".
Unfortunately long gone in many of the hierarchical
Churches, especially the Roman. They have denuded
the beauty they used to have in favor of simplicity, and
as a result have lost a whole generation of believers.
