A few bits of online information regarding the practices surrounding Lent.
Slate discusses Lent's newly broadened-appeal;
The Catholic Encyclopedia gives an overview of Lenten practice and theology in the West;
and a brief history of Shrove Tuesday (or Mardi Gras) by Wikipedia.
Appropriate for a liturgical discussion, eh?
