What Do You Do On “Fat Tuesday?”


It might just be human nature. Prior to entering into a season of penance and mortification, we like to “live it up” one last time. Of course, as Catholic Christians, we want to feast when the Church feasts, and fast when the Church fasts. Not that Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is a day specifically set aside by the Church for “feasting” in any particular sense. On Tuesday, we want to talk about what you do – or don’t do – on the day before Ash Wednesday, perhaps to enjoy something you love one final time for at least forty days. Or, do you spend Fat Tuesday spiritually preparing to get your Lent started the next day? Should be in interesting and enlightening discussion.

  1. The Walla Walla Italians celebrate Fat Tuesday with potato pasta and Italian sausage! (Instead of pancakes). This was the tradition from the southern region of Italy in Calabria. Oh so good! Love you two! God bless you!


  2. My wife and I are from New Orleans. So we head up an appreciation dinner, for all those that donate their time at our church in Dallas Georgia. This year our gala includes red beans and rice, seafood gumbo, andouille gumbo, pastalaya, dobash cake, and of course lots of king cakes. It’s a grand time for about a hundred and thirty-five guess


  3. I heard someone today on your show talk about instead of giving something up, chose to pick up something new. So I have taken up reading the Bible and the Catechism in a year. If anyone is interested I can send the info. God bless and have a great Lent/Easter tide!
