Great faith is shown in today’s Gospel when the four men carrying a paralytic was unable to reach JESUS because of the crowd around HIM.  They opened the roof and lowered the paralytic down to JESUS.  How easy we have it - - visiting JESUS in the Adoration Chapel.

The Christian faithful are to do penance through prayer, fasting, abstinence and exercising works of piety and charity.  All Fridays through the year and especially during Lent are penitential days.

All who have reached their 14th birthday are to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays during Lent.

All those who are 18 and older until their 59th Birthday, are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  One full meal is allowed on fast days.

Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one’s need; but together they should not equal another full meal.  Eating between meals is not  permitted, but liquids are allowed.

The obligation dos not apply to those whose health or ability to work would be affected seriously.  People in doubt about fast or abstinence should consult a parish priest or confessor.
