Latest Live - Stream Mass/Devotion
Mass of anticipation of the Second Sunday of Lent (Saturday Vigil):
Lent is the 40-day season of preparation for the Paschal Triduum. The 40 days are counted from Ash Wednesday of Lent until Holy Thursday. (Lent ends on Holy Thursday.) The readings at Mass on these days were chosen to teach us about the three Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. In imitation of the Lord, the Church invites us to spend these forty days in prayer, fasting, and works of mercy. Lent was originally the time for an intense preparation to receive the Sacrament of Baptism, the initiation into the Christian Community. For those already baptized, it is a time to renew our relationship with Christ and His Body, the Church. This special season can be a means of gaining a greater sensitivity to God’s presence in our lives and the needs of those less fortunate. The following outline offers some suggestions for spiritual growth during this season. Also, take note of the Lenten regulations below.
FASTING AND ABSTINENCE IN LENT: (Canon Law)
Abstinence from meat is required by those 14 and older on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays in Lent. In addition, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are fast days: those between the ages of 18 and 59 should eat less - no solid food between meals and only one meal that day should be a full one. (Serious reasons, for example one’s health, can excuse you from these rules.) The law of the Church also encourages parents to see to it that minors who are not bound by law of fast and abstinence are educated in an authentic sense of penance.
Beyond Church Law, one might choose to practice self-denial in many ways that could be called “fasting” - greater temperance in food and drink, fasting from the noise of television, radio, public entertainment, and using the time saved in spiritual reading or Bible study.
