The long, dark days of Lent are over, and it's time to celebrate! And in Catholic Churchy circles, celebration means Sacraments. Join Dizzy & Ges (and Baby Ges!) at the intersection of Confirmation Lane and First Communion Way. We'll hang out, brown bag it on the corner, watch the traffic go by...and never get our mass card punched!
Good Friday? How about GREAT Friday! Well, I mean, except for that whole Jesus dying on a cross thing. That part of this particular Friday was...unfortunate. Nonetheless, this dark Friday of Triduum is not without hope, as the joy of the empty tomb is just around the corner. Soak a sponge in some wine and join Dizzy & Ges for a deep dive on the time-honored tradition of the Easter Vigil, the Catholic Church's biggest and best (and longest) Liturgy of the year!
If Lent is an entire 40-day season to reflect on how we have been living our lives in relation to Christ and our fellow man, then the first few days of Holy Week offer the opportunity to reflect on how our Lent has gone. And if you (like us here at Church Drunk) are looking back and finding your Lent lacking, then it is time to holy hard this week! The 2019 Stations of the Cross Playlist is here to help.
Do you love Jesus? Well, you got a big week coming up! Do you love Game of Thrones? Well, your Palm Sunday might be all about John Snow & Co. Do you love Jesus AND Game of Thrones? Well, Dizzy & Ges are here to sing you a very special song of ice and fire and palms and crosses and cocktails!
For the speed readers out there, feel free to consider this the 2019 edition of the Lenten Reading List. For the rest of us...let's just be grateful that there are 50 days of Eastertide for us to contemplate (and read about) the mystery of life, death, and resurrection! Deep in our bookish hearts, we here at Church Drunk love to find God between the pages of a favorite story, and the long, dark season of Lent yearns to be accompanied by a good book or two. So we've made it a bit of a tradition to put together a short list of good reads for Lent.
