Lent may be over, but I came across a funny post on the blog of the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about them imagining what it would be like if their community practiced the medieval monastic custom of having a funeral service and burial for the butter, lard, and fat the monks were giving up for Lent. The post also has some good reflections on how "discerning a life choice such as whether to enter a religious community will entail burying a few things": Amuzing Grace - Confessions of a Vocation Director.
