All Quiet on the Roman Front

Well, we're halfway through Retreat Week for the Pope and his Curial heads, and nothing's happening. No conferences, no appointment announcements, no general audience today, bubkus.

This isn't the worst thing in the world, you know. Through history, Popes have used Lent as hairshirt-wearing time, and I've been spending this week performing analogous mortification: catching up on cleaning my place, which in recent weeks has looked like several bombs hit it.

How's everyone's Lenten journey coming?
