Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Venice ‘Celebrates’ Lent

March 8th, 2011, Promulgated by Bernie

At midnight tonight, Venice, Italy (and many other places around the world) will end its frivolity and pursuit of false pleasures it has been engaging in the last few weeks in order to celebrate the realities of eternal truth and happiness which come with the dawn of Ash Wednesday and the cleansing and refreshing penance of Lent. At midnight all the church bells in the city will ring and the masks will come off and the ashes will go on.  A sudden and startling contrast -conversion?
