Lent is a time for us to grow in holiness and grace. There are many ways for us to do this; prime among them is prayer, Mass, and Confession. Come to the additional times of prayer — Stations of the Cross on Friday evenings; confessions on Monday evenings. As God offers us His mercy we must then offer love and mercy to others through the Spiritual and Corporal works Of Mercy. Through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, may we grow in holiness this Lent so that when Easter arrives we will be able to celebrate fully the mystery of Christ’s Resurrection.
There are two days when the law of fasting and abstinence applies: Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The law of fast applies to those individuals ages 18 to 59, and it means that an individual may have one meal and may take nourishment (other than meat) twice during the day sufficient to maintain strength. Taken together, these two other opportunities for nourishment should not equal another meal. The Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence. The law of abstinence applies to those who are 14 years of age and older, and an individual is to abstain from meat on those days.
