LENTEN FAST, ABSTINENCE REGULATIONS

March 1 is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten & Good Friday are days of FASTING: Catholics, from the 18th birthday up to the 59th birthday (the beginning of the 60th year) are obliged to fast, that is, take only one full meal and two lesser meals, with nothing to eat in between meals. Drinking fluids is not contrary to the practice of fasting. Additionally, Ash Wednesday, All Fridays of Lent & Good Friday are days of ABSTAINING: All Catholics, beginning with the 14th birthday, are obliged to abstain from eating meat. People who are unable to practice bodily penance, due to pregnancy, illness, or hard physical labor may choose another form of penance or charity. The Church urges that works of penance be linked to works of charity – for example, using the money saved on less expensive meals or giving up snacks to feed the poor.

PSR ON ASH WEDNESDAY

We will have PSR class on Ash Wednesday, immediately
following 6:30 pm Mass. Please be advised that class start time will likely be delayed and all students should go to the church to begin PSR. Parents, please remember that students should NOT be sitting in their cars in the parking lot upon arrival, they should go to the church unless class has already begun.

Weekday thoughts 2.15

The weekday readings have been about creation and now the flood and Noah… We can reflect on how God is present in those moments; we too need to reflect how God is present in our world today. It is in that reflection that Noah knew what God was asking him to do with his life. When we are reflecting, God can let us know what we are to do with our lives. I know, it is not always easy to listen to God, but we can take time to ‘be’ with the Lord in prayer.

A thought 1-25

It is a lovely day, a little cool but we are in winter. I had a marvelous time last weekend with family as we celebrated; I think everyone had a good time. I enjoyed seeing everyone and saw some people that I have not seen for years. Family and gatherings are always good for me, maybe not all people can say that but our family has been able to work thru any ‘rough spots’ that come along. I pray for families and the ‘ideal’ of family. Maybe there is no ideal family, but each of us can work toward living as children of God and make our world a better place.
