Day 46 of 40…what’s that all about?
Well, it’s just that it finally dawned on me that if I continued with my current numbering of these posts I’d end up posting day 46 of 40, rather than Day 40 of 40, on Easter Saturday.
My mistake was a simple one. I did not grow up in a liturgical tradition, it’s something I adopted later in life. How could I be expected to know that during the traditional fast of Lent…Sundays were not fast days, so when you remove the 6 Sundays between Ash Wednesday and Easter Saturday you get…40, as required!
Today is Palm Sunday…I wrote a post on the events of that day on ‘Days 30 and 31 of 40’…which begins what is traditionally known as Holy Week, leading up to the events surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus.
So, what I’ve decided to do is, rather than try to adjust my faulty numbering, start a new series on “Holy Week”. Tomorrow you can read “Holy Week-Monday”…I’m done with number sequences!
