Ash Wednesday and Fridays during Lent are days of abstinence when we abstain from eating meat, as a sacrifice of our own to express love and unity with Christ Who offered up His Flesh as a sacrifice for us.
Ash Wednesday is also a fast day. It is a day of personal self-denial whereby, health permitting, we would eat only one full meal, and the other two should just be light meals. The whole purpose of denying ourselves is to strengthen the soul so that we would be able to be more loving, more forgiving, and more unselfish.
We will be holding Stations of the Cross during Lent on Friday evenings in the Upper Church at 7:30 p.m.
