The_Harlequin_King Wrote:Actually, confessions are traditionally done on the two days prior to Ash Wednesday, called Shrove Monday and Shrove Tuesday (also Fat Tuesday). The word "shrove" comes from "shriving" of one's sins, i.e. confessing. Of course, in medieval times, people generally had specific days of the year for confession since it wasn't as frequent as post-Tridentine times (but still more frequent than the average NO Catholic of today).

Wikipedia Wrote:The word <I>shrove</I> is the past tense of the English verb <I>shrive</I>, which means to obtain <A title=Absolution href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolution" target=_blank target=_blank>absolution</A> for one's <A title=Sin href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sin" target=_blank target=_blank>sins</A> by way of <A title=Confession href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confession" target=_blank target=_blank>Confession</A> and doing <A title=Penance href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penance" target=_blank target=_blank>penance</A>. Thus Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the shriving that English Christians were expected to do prior to receiving absolution immediately before Lent begins.


No confessions on Monday or Tuesday either anywhere around me.
