When I think of Lent, I can't help but think of Johnny Depp. My priest would probably not appreciate that -- on many many levels -- especially since Lent begins a period of sacrifice and self-deprivation. But c'mon, it's Johnny Depp we're talking about. There is no DEPPrivation in Johnny Depp. Or maybe there is. But I'm pretty sure Jesus will understand. He's good like that.
I think of Johnny Depp from that movie he starred in a while back with Juliette Binoche (who I actually love more than Johnny Depp) called Chocolat, where a woman (played by Juliette) and her daughter open a chocolate shop in a small French village in the middle of Lent, shaking the morality of the residents to their knees as they try to resist her decadent treats.
Okay so it wasn't the best movie in the world, and it didn't portray Catholics in the nicest light, but then again, it doesn't have to be perfect. It was starring Johnny Depp!
