Have mercy on me, God, in accord with your merciful love; in your abundant compassion blot out my transgressions. Thoroughly wash away my guilt; and from my sin cleanse me. For I know my transgressions; my sin is always before me. ...CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE

March 9—A Catholic Approach to Scripture
March 16—The Old Testament: An Overview
March 23—The New Testament: An Overview
Each year the Lord Jesus calls the entire Church to a special season of penance and renewal. As we begin
this holy time of Lent, we should reflect on our need for conversion of heart, prayer, charitable works and
penance. The season of Lent extends this year from Ash Wednesday, February 18 to the Mass of the
Lord’s Supper, April 2, inclusive.
♦ Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent.
♦ Everyone 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is also bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
On these two days of fast and abstinence, only one full meatless meal is allowed. The other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one’s needs, but altogether they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted on these two days, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or the ability to work would be seriously affected, the obligation is modified. Because Lent is a special season for all Christians, we should not lightly excuse ourselves from these practices.
