Reminder – Lenten Ember days start tomorrow February 28, 2012

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Basics, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic, Lent, Liturgy, North Deanery, Tradition, Virtue.

The Lenten Ember Days start tomorrow.  Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of this week are days of fasting (having one full meal and two smaller meals that don’t equal, together, the full one) and abstinence (some sources say partial abstinence, meaning you can have one meal with meat, but the ‘traditional’ schedule I posted below recommends complete abstinence from flesh meat on Ember Days, which is what I had always understood.

This is a penitential season!  Penitence means sacrifice!  Get your fish on! Or your beans and mashed potatoes, whatever!

Thanks for the reminder! BTW, I visited Mater Dei this morning for confession. I love going to Fr. Longua.

He’s very good. So is Fr. Wolfe. They’re different, but very complimentary. Of course, Fr. Weinberger is also very good. We’re blessed to have some good confessors in this Diocese. I pray we have many, many more.
