Looks like I jumped the gun

Apparently, I misunderstood the exact definition of when Lent ends. I knew it ended on Holy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter), but I thought it ended in the morning of that day, which is why I had the coffee and cake.

Wrong. It actually ends at sundown on that day, which is when the Lord's Supper is celebrated.

Dang, and I tried so hard to maintain my Lenten vows during the past six weeks, just to drop the ball at the goal line.

Today is Good Friday, when Catholics are supposed to fast (one meal allowed). Well, just to really drive the point home, someone in our office brought in donuts and cookies. Along with about a dozen other people in the office, I'm looking on hungrily at everyone else enjoying them.

Lord, lead me not into temptation, I can find it all by myself.
