I don’t know if you’ll find a more thorough set of lists to prepare you to walk with Christ this Lent. At the end of the post you’ll find links to our previous years’ posts.

from Simply Catholic

Abstaining

No meat can be eaten on Ash Wednesday and all of the Fridays during Lent. This applies Catholics 14 and older. 

Fasting

Only one full regular sized meal is permitted on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday for Catholics between 18 and 59. Two smaller meals are permitted, but the small meals should not equal a second full meal. Drinking coffee, tea, and water between meals is allowed. Snacks between meals are not allowed. Exemptions are made, of course, for nursing mothers, the ill, and the elderly for whom fasting would severely compromise their health.

Confession

You should strive to go to confession once a month (more frequently also encouraged), but especially during Lent.

About Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to seven kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-1/17. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.
