Mardi Gras

The campus ministry of Creighton University asks: "How can we give this day before Ash Wednesday some religious meaning for us?"

If being a Catholic is more than simply avoiding sin and practicing virtue, but is a way of life, a way of looking at the world... does the traditional "carnival" before the great fast require a blatantly religious meaning?

(Thanks to Happy Catholic for the link, and a collection of insights to honor the feast.)
