Reflection Corner: Lenten Season Begins
Ash Wednesday, February 10th, is the beginning of the Lent Season. It is a time of repentance, prayer and fasting for forty days. This day receives its special name from the blessing and imposition of ASHES in the form of a cross on our foreheads. “Remember man that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
PRAYER: Jesus, our Savior, grant to your faithful, Lord, a spirit generous enough to begin these solemn fasts with proper fervor and to pursue them with greater devotion. This we ask of you in your most holy name. Amen. (Liturgical Press)
Reminder on Church Doctrine on Fasting and Abstinence: Abstinence from eating meat is to be observed on all FRIDAYS during Lent. Abstinence from eating meat is to be observed on all Fridays during Lent. This applies to all persons 14 and older. Fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday applies to all Catholics from age 18 through age 59.
