If my maths is correct – it may not be – it’s two days between Ash Wednesday and Lent 1 and we are therefore ‘in the middle’. Lent this year is a transition period between the Church of England, of which I have now left, and the Roman Catholic Church, of which I will be joining.
Transitions can be strange periods of time, often referred as the calm before the storm. There is no storm in joining Rome, but we are leaving a storm behind.
Looking forward to Lent 1.
