Nothing to see here, folks
That noise you just heard was a collective sigh of relief, heaved by the clergy and laity of the Boston archdiocese, who will no longer be expected to pretend that they care about how marriage is legally defined in Massachusetts.
The weather's OK, the Sox are winning, and we haven't closed any parishes yet this week. Why worry about every little thing?

Maybe it should be more general, a sinners Lenten calendar. One day, refrain from stealing. The next, don't stab anyone. The next, don't poison anyone. The next, don't take food away from the poor. The next, don't emit CO2 and cause global warming and kill the unborn. And so on.

I'm surprised that they didn't advise not receiving ashes on Ash Wednesday - talk about missing the quintessential "carbon fasting" action!
