40 Day Lenten thoughts: Your mid-day Lenten booster

This blessed season, I wish we journey together with 40 thoughts over the 40 days of Lent. I shall be sending my short reflection, less than 5 minutes, every day of these 40 days. It is essentially my reflection at our daily Mass, hosted on our YouTube page and link sent out to you via flocknote by Noon of the day. Please visit our YouTube page

I also wish to offer a couple of notes to remind us of the rules of the church to help us practice our faith and prepare for our Lenten journey.

  • Canon 1250 - All Fridays through the year and at the time of Lent are penitential days and times throughout the entire Church.
  • Canon 1251 - Abstinence from eating meat or another food according to the prescriptions of the conference of bishops is to be observed on Fridays throughout the year unless they are solemnities; abstinence and fast are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and on the Friday of the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Canon 1252 - All persons who have completed their fourteenth year are bound by the law of abstinence; all adults are bound by the law of fasting up to the beginning of their sixtieth year. Nevertheless, pastors and parents are to see to it that minors who are not bound by the law of fast and abstinence are educated in an authentic sense of penance.
  • Canon 1253: It is for the conference of bishops to determine more precisely the observance of fast and abstinence and to substitute in whole or in part for fast and abstinence other forms of penance especially works of charity and exercises of piety.

Below are some resources that speak to the Lenten season and will aid us in refreshing our mind about this holy season and allied themes. Click on the link and order from the publisher for free.        

May the merciful Lord who carried his cross for us, suffered and died for us, help us through our Lenten discipline and self-denial. May he answer all our prayers and petitions.

Yours in the Lord,

Fr. Victor Amole.
