Lent 2016
#41
I'll be doing what my Priest has said I should do as a Traditional Catholic. I don't think I need to explain that much.

All I know right now is once Lent starts I'll wish I had fasted throughout the year on Ember Days etc  :LOL:

For Lent, I'm going to try to pray from the Secular Franciscan prayer book I have as well as from the Publicans Prayer book, plus daily recitation of the Psalms (not necessarily saying the Kathismata either). Lent last year for me was "overburdened" with prayer, so I am taking it easier and not stressing myself out in the process.

Our Pastor said last Sunday: "If Ninive would have fasted for only 2 days, what do you think would have happened?"

Just wanted to share that. I was convicted, because there are always times when I'm tempted to make an exception, especially after 12 hours of work. "Weeellll, I'm not bound under pain of sin to fast today...maybe I'll pray another Rosary (probably not)."

We have to fast if we believe that God is still capable of wrath. I have no excuse.

Jonah 3 (DR)

1 And the word of the Lord came to Jonas the second time, saying:
2 Arise, and go to Ninive the great city: and preach in it the preaching that I bid thee.
3 And Jonas arose, and went to Ninive, according to the word of the Lord: now Ninive was a great city of three days' journey.
4 And Jonas began to enter into the city one day's journey: and he cried, and said: Yet forty days, and Ninive shall be destroyed.
5 And the men of Ninive believed in God: and they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth from the greatest to the least.
6 And the word came to the king of Ninive; and he rose up out of his throne, and cast away his robe from him, and was clothed with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.
7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published in Ninive from the mouth of the king and of his princes, saying: Let neither men nor beasts, oxen nor sheep, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water.
8 And let men and beasts be covered with sackcloth, and cry to the Lord with all their strength, and let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the iniquity that is in their hands.
9 Who can tell if God will turn, and forgive: and will turn away from his fierce anger, and we shall not perish?
10 And God saw their works, that they were turned from their evil way: and God had mercy with regard to the evil which he had said that he would do to them, and he did it not.

Current fasting rules to allow for a full meal. So after 12 hours of work, you are allowed to have a meal.

On another notes, sugar in coffee or tea. Yay or nay? Either way, I'm not sure whether even if it's allowed I'll add it. It's like a penance drinking it plain  :LOL:.

I mean after having a full meal and two collations. I'm aware of the rules and there's no way I'm not having my full meal until the end of second shift.
