at the outset of lent

One can say: "I will, but my body does not obey me"; but not: "My will does not obey me."
-- St. Augustine

This must be something for us to think about while fasting during Lent. It's better than what we heard last night at the Ash Wednesday Mass. In all seriousness our pastor said that it's that JOYOUS time of Lent. Meanwhile I was hungry from fasting, tired from working at the office all day, and bored with the same homily we've heard for the past 8 Ash Wednesdays. But my body obeyed my will. I didn't run out screaming in the middle of Mass.

I think Diogenes needs a little time off! Dan
