    No sorry - I'm not catholic. :p Closer to anglican than to catholic.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Yes, but a lot of people identify lent as a specific time to do this. I know that it's about more than giving up a vice or two for 40 days and then back to the same old same old.

    Drinking is ok. Getting drunk is a no no.

    Episcopalians have a VERY high threshhold, so it's okay. :p

    I understand - which is why we're taught that our sacrifice shouldn't be a vice. Those you're not supposed to have the first place.
