Give it up if you have it to give


Shrove Tuesday is a feast before Lent, observed by many who ‘make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life, or areas of spiritual growth, they especially need to ask God’s help in dealing with.’ ‘Shrove’, from the word shrive, meaning ‘absolve’. ‘February’, from purification, via the ritual Februa held on February full moon in the old lunar calendar. :
