Ash Wednesday

Well, today begins Lent, probably my favorite 40 days in the liturgical year. I’m not joking: Lent is an established period to assess one’s actions and evaluate what one truly holds dear. I’m not into Lent to give something up, though I may end up doing so during my self-reflection. So, blessed Lent, everyone!

Ash Wednesday also happens to be opening day for The Passion of the Christ. I won’t comment on it until I see it some time next week. But I will say this: Gibson’s movie seems to be incredibly divisive—a result that seems contrary to Christ’s atoning action. Maybe this won’t be as big a problem as it seems right now. I need to think about this some more, and I really do need to see what Gibson does before getting too far along.

On my LiveJournal there’s a brief exchange worth reading, largely revolving around the oft-discussed controversy surrounding The Passion of the Christ. I think the “person” who wrote to me probably doesn’t exist: his reply came within 20 minutes of my post—and who would go through the trouble of reading my journal?

Hi Erik, I thought I'd just leave this message on your blog. I hope you don't mind. I've been trying to find blogs where people are talking about curriculum vitae retail and when I was looking, I found this one on this post. Ash Wednesday, thought I would say hi, before I go off to find some more curriculum vitae retail
