done. Now the Fast is before us. Bootcamp for the age to come. Gloria in Excelsis silenced until Easter (save for Annunciation). Prayer. Fasting. Almsgiving. Love taking shape in our concrete living. Returning together to the resurrection life given us in our Baptism.

Well then, here is my thought for Rosenmontag -- having just come from a discussion of fasting on another blog, and my thoughts on the matter well known here, re die Fastenzeit ich habe nichts zu sagen.

However, if one is sufficiently carried away by the free flowing spirits, fermented rather than holy, of the day, and observe the most venerable tradition of tossing bottles of Koelnischwasser around, I would be most happy to accept some 4711!
