From Bishop Walkowiak: “The Light is on for You: An evening of penance–Thursday, March 15. During this event Sacred Heart will be open for the sacrament of reconciliation from 5:00-8:00 p.m. See the diocesan website dioceseofgrandrapids.org for other locations and further details. I encourage you to join us for this special evening; it is never too late to seek the gift of God’s mercy which brings serenity and peace.
Lenten Practices–FASTING is observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by everyone 18 years of age and older, who has not yet celebrated their 59th birthday. On a fast day, one full meal is allowed. Two other meals–enough to maintain strength–may be taken, according to each one’s needs. But together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but consuming liquids, including milk and juice, is allowed.
In addition, ABSTINENCE is observed on Ash Wednesday and ALL Fridays of Lent by everyone 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence no meat is allowed. Note that when one’s health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.
If a person is unable to observe the above regulations due to health or other serious reasons, other suitable forms of self-denial are encouraged.
The point of fasting and abstinence is to remind us of our radical need for God’s support as we undergo conversion in His love.
