Now I want pie.  It's tough being a Catholic during lent.

Ahhh.... pizza.  Another one of my great weaknesses.

Pizza is not a weakness.  Just sayin
O God, who dost purify Thy Church by the yearly observance of Lent: grant to Thy household, that what we strive to obtain from Thee by abstinence, we may achieve by good works. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth world without end.

You also could have named this post 22/7 or 333/106 but they're only good to 2 and 5 places respectively.  :tongue: ;)

Coincidence, I think not.



I love it!  But I can't have pie, it is Friday in Lent.  And I'm hungry, especially for pie (for which I blame this thread).
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee! Save souls!

You must be rounding up pretty substantially.

This thread took an interesting, but delicious, turn.
