Our observance of Lent begins this year on
Ash Wednesday, February 18th, 2015
.

At all Masses and Prayer Services on Ash Wednesday, the imposition of ashes replicates an ancient penitential practice and symbolizes our dependence upon God's mercy and forgiveness. This day is also a day of Fast and Abstinence. During Lent, all the baptized are called to renew their baptismal commitment, to be followers of Jesus

The three traditional pillars of Lenten observance are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The Church asks us to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture each day or as often as possible in our busy lives. We are also asked to faithfully participate in the Sacraments of Penance and Eucharist (Mass).

Fasting means only one full meal and two very light meals during the day and no eating between meals. The norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59.  On Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent, the church asks us to abstain from all meat. These obligations to fast and abstain are binding on all Catholics in good health from the age of 14 onward. Each of us can observe these practices. Whether we are in the break room at work, whether we are at home, or whether we are at the cafeteria at the high school, we have precious opportunities to recall our hunger for God and that our true fulfillment is found only in Him.

Likewise, the giving of alms is some effort to share this world equally—not only through the distribution of money, but through the sharing of our time and talents.

The key to fruitful observance of these practices is to recognize their link to our baptismal renewal. We are called not just to abstain from sin during Lent but to true conversion of our hearts and minds as followers of Christ. We recall those waters in which we were baptized into Christ’s death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ.
