The Lenten Ember Days start tomorrow.  Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of this week are days of fasting (having one full meal and a snack.  Older sources say the snack should be less than 8oz of solid food) and abstinence or partial abstinence (I guess you can have 1 meal with meat, depends on who you ask).

This is a penitential season!  Penitence means sacrifice!  Get your fish on! Or lentils!  Lentils are good!  I like beans shaped like little kidneys!  No, I don’t, I hate them!  Whatever!  Offer it up!

OK. I will commit to this. Please pray for me as I am such a spiritual weakling.

I’m proud of you! Dominus vobiscum! Remember, some folks say an Ember Day is a day of partial fast and abstinence, that you can have meat at the main meal. It depends on who you talk to.
