The Season of Lent -
Fast and Abstinence:
All Catholics who
have reached their 14th year are bound to abstain entirely from meat
on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent. All Catholics
between the ages of 18 and 59 inclusive are also bound to observe
the law of fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. This means
limiting oneself to a single full meal and avoiding food between
meals. Two other light meals, which together do not equal a
full meal, may be taken during the day.
carefully choose what you will sacrifice for Lent; and what ever it
is, do it with a generous and joyful heart. It's our way of
saying we are sorry for our sins and that we understand and
appreciate the sacrifices Christ endured for love of us. Like
everything this side of heaven, we'll only get out of Lent what we
put into it.
