More than pancakes

Today is Shrove Tuesday, when one tradition tells us we should eat pancakes.
Using up perishable food stuffs before starting a period of fasting makes good sense.
Could feasting on pancakes obscure the link with and reason for fasting?

In her BBC Thought for the Day the revd Lucy Winkett links it all together:
the meaning of Shrove Tuesday, the war in Ukraine, and our own being human.

Fast forward to 07.49 on the above link to hear her make sense of it all.
