Ash wednesday

Angel& mary with color 

Today is fat Tuesday and tomorrow is ash Wednesday. Even though I am a cafeteria catholic (The term Cafeteria Catholic also, à la carte Catholic or CINO = "Catholic In Name Only", is applied to those who dissent from Catholic moral teaching on issues such as abortioncontraceptionpremarital sexmasturbation, and homosexuality. from wikipedia) I have always been enthralled  by the tradition of  Ashes to ashes dust to dust…..From the English Burial Service. Adapted from the Biblical text, Genesis 3:19 (King James Version):  "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."  

Angel & mary

   I may spend the rest of my life quetsioning organized religion but I will never question the authenticity of Mary…..for me in my life.

    I can completely relate to this post. The term I like as well is Recovering Catholic. Regardless of what I may or may not believe, Mary is still numero uno. : D
