I also encourage others to challenge me and my writing, so feel free to share your thoughts!


“There is a time for everything…under the heavens. (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Thank you Fr. D. The truth of the contrast of the two seasons is beautifully captured here. Reading this gave me hope. In spite of it all, Lent for many of us, still has the “final Word”. And what is this word? It is the Word that still exists in the lives of human beings; beckoning us in all our frailty to return again and again, to the Word made Flesh…Christ himself, during the season of Lent. Thank you Carnival! Your “farewell to the flesh” images, with all its beauty, creativity, magnificence, debauchery, drunkenness et al still makes way for the entrance of the Word to be made flesh once again in frail humanity.”
