As a youngster I was baptised at various stages by three different Christian Churches (I assume now the the new one crosses out the old one, but as a child I just assumed I was a member of three clubs whose members were mostly horrible singers). The one thing that made being a Catholic and going to a Catholic school for a brief period bearable was Shrove Tuesday, though as an adult I’d completely forgotten about it un til I saw this post. Can all of us lapsed church goers pretend that today is Shrove Thursday instead?
