The Lenten Pipe

Post by Hovannes » Tue Feb 13, 2018 2:47 pm

Since I don't smoke my pipes enough to miss them if I give it up for Lent, I won't.
But I may donate any money I'd spend on new tobacco purchases to a worthy charity instead.

What role will your pipes play, if any, in your journey this Lent?

I give up frivolous spending every year for lent. Pipes represent most of that frivolity.

I'll hopefully smoke them more as I seek to spend much more time in my prayer journal. We shall see.

Our friends at the American Chesterton Society have commissioned Dan Boswell to make a run of "Chesterton Pipes" for us. (See p. 19 of your latest copy of Gilbert! magazine.) It is a slightly over-sized bent bulldog. PM if you have any interest.
==========================

I am thankful for this thread, John.

I don't smoke enough. Maybe a bowl a day, most days.

I am inspired now to make a Lenten pledge: I will prepare a bowl every day, at about the same time of the evening, and pray a rosary or chaplet. Then read a book.... perhaps an essay from In Defense of Sanity, or perhaps a chapter from Sirach, or maybe even tackle some Summa by Aquinas.

I am not a mystic.... but I can smoke a pipe and read a book, and my Lent will be richer for for.

Well, given that I only smoke outdoors, and the weather is just now becoming nice enough to comfortably sit outside, I might actually smoke a little more during Lent. I really don't smoke at all in the winter.

On the Lenten side of things, well, my wife really doesn't like the smell of smoke on me. So maybe her subtle displeasure is part of my Lenten experience each year.

Dan Boswell works fast.

The Chesterton Pipes are shipping out. I will smoke my before Easter!

I have no gumption for learning how to post pictures -- or how to make them, in the first place. I've taken less than 12 pictures since I got my smart phone.

Anyhow, it's a bent bulldog with a saddle bit. I was the last one to pick a pipe from the bunch, so I think I got the ugly one.
