Not exactly a spiritual crisis, but...

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Apr 21, 2003

The chocolate tastes good today, and I'm about to invest heavily in ice cream after a 40-day layoff.

St. Augustine said that it is a sin to fast during Eastertide. I'm tempted to say that I shall never fall into that sin. But that would be presumption. So let's just say I'll examine my conscience regularly, guarding carefully against any tendency in that direction.

Happy Easter!
