Can I Count?

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

An obvious question arises if you have been reading my posts since Ash Wednesday — why does it seem that I am off by a day in my Lenten count?

In my mind, since Lent starts on Ash Wednesday, that is Day 1, not the next day, Thursday. Ash Wednesday is not some specialized day set apart from the rest of the church calendar. That is the day the church recognizes the start of Lent and hence, to me, that is Day 1 of Lent.
