From Darkness to Light For Catholics and some other denominations of Christianity the idolatrous celebrations of Mardi Gras and Carnival serve as the precursor to their so-called “Holy Season” of Lent and Easter.

Join us today as we examine the origins and history of Mardi Gras and Carnival – including its pagan connection to religion and the Church.
