Got Lent?

As the final Sunday before Ash Wednesday dawns, the Cardinal of the South relates that, just like no shortage of the flock, he's shirking the sugar for Lent:
Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of the Catholic Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston will give up snacks and sweets — especially doughnuts...
But that's not all:
...and spend more time in meditative reading with the Gospels.
Just a reminder for the more procrastinatory among us -- narrator included -- who still have yet to hash our gameplan out that time's running short; hard as it is to believe, just over 72 hours remain.
