The beginning of Lent. The season we all dread the most…
No meat on Friday.
What to give up?
What counts as meat?
I hate fish.
What exactly does fasting and abstinence mean anyway?
Jimmy Akin did a great blog entry on the basics over at his site.
Personally I am mixed about it this year. I really want to use the time for some serious spiritual introspection and examination. I’d like to do some serious denial by giving up something difficult, but can’t decide what. Probably going to do something food related. Something like sweets and snacks. Need to get the weight back down anyway. Still, it doesn’t shout back at me, “Do this!”
Ah well. Offer it up. 🙂
