The first bowl of Lenten Soup of the New Year... it is a delicious black bean concoction that everyone gobbled up. I'm very glad that there aren't leftovers! Father John commented that it would be even better with beef or chicken and a handful of cheese. I can't help you with that on a strict fast day, sir!
We had Matins and the blessing of waters last night and the little ones were so cute watching everything with big eyes. Button fell asleep about twenty minutes in so it was a pretty peaceful service for his mama. Joyous Feast!
