Archbishop Gregory Michael Aymond, the current metropolitan archbishop of the New Orleans Archdiocese, today made a plea to Pope Benedict to postpone Lent for a month for the New Orleans area. The Archbishop stated "if you agree to this request, we will serve a 50 day Lent." The Vatican has not made a response regarding the request. The Archbishop further stated "We have served penance for 43 years with the Saints. Please let this party extend one more month!"
P.S. Just kidding of course!
