I attended the Sunday church service at St Andrew’s Cathedral today after a few weeks. Travels, other commitments and a lack of drive had come in the way.
It is seldom missed by my family. I joined them this morning with the Lent set to start on Wednesday (January 10). Today is also my elder daughter’s birthday.
There was a time when I used to observe Lent in totality – staying away from meat for 47 days though I have hardly been obsessively religious. The more orthodox ones will fast on Fridays during the Lent. But I have not done that so far.
