Xt3 brings Lenten comedy relief

{mosimage}A social networking site will offer humour as part of its Lenten program beginning Feb. 25.

Members of Xt3.com will be able to access a daily calendar that will include “daily readings, podcasts and music to give inspiration — and some laughter — during the 40 days of Lent,” according to a press release from the site.

The Catholic networking site, launched by Cardinal George Pell, archbishop of Sydney, Australia, after World Youth Day 2008, is an abbreviation for “Christ in the third millennium.” The site allows its more than 40,000 current members worldwide to message friends, upload photos, add to their “prayer wall,” ask a priest something, view articles, hear and view audio and video files and more.

The Lenten calendar will also broadcast Pope Benedict XVI’s transfer of the World Youth Day Cross and icon in Rome on Palm Sunday.
