25. Friday abstinence


Dear Sibling,

All of Lent is a period of penance, but especially Friday.

Because Friday was the day Christ died.

On Friday’s the Church expects the faithful to abstain from meat [1].

But, we can further our penance by observing other penitential acts:


Fasting (having 1 regular meal and 2 light meals)


Small sacrifices

Small acts of service

All of these can help us practice submitting our internal desires to our will.

And uniting our will to God’s.
