Argentinian Archbishop Warns That the Fun Ends on Ash Wednesday

Buenos Aires (  Argentina's Carnaval goers are celebrating a little too freely according to Archbishop Andres Stanovnik: the colorful celebration may not be celebrated past Mardigras, warns a letter of the Archdiocese of Corrientes according to the Latin American Catholic Press Service Aciprensa.

"I remind all Catholics of the Archdiocese that Lent begins on February 13th," says Stanovnik.  For the Catholic Church begins its preparation for Easter on Ash Wednesday; Ash Wednesday itself is a Fast -  and day of abstinence.
