It’s Friday today – means no MEAT day. It is abstinence rules for a Catholic to abstain from eating meat on Friday.
Every person 14 years of age or older must abstain from meat (and items made with meat) on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent. Every person between the age of 18 and 59 (beginning of 60th year) must fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
But remember again, that in Catholic it’s not just about FOOD. The most important in Lent is to demonstrate love and fogiveness.
Abstaining from meat is my choice – to spritually get close to the Lord. To remember that on Friday ,Jesus sacrified his flesh and his blood to save us.
Day 8 of lent ( yesterday), and i am still lack of giving and praying. I slowly limit my social media ( FB,insta) to avoid any unwanted critism or judging reading the news feed. Ha ha , well sometimes i can’t help it – especially when I saw bragging post or ‘oh-thats-so-her’ post. Once home, i won’t touch my phone – but concentrate the time with my beautiful kids <3
So yesterday, i decided to be humble on road.
It might sound simple or ‘oo-i-did-it-everyday’, but i put all my sincerity there :D. I let other car go first, i pray for the reckless driver, and i smile to other driver when stop on traffic light.
This year lent, i will try to really appreciate and make holy the season with fasting and do good.
The third day of lent , i decided to donate blood to one particular child at Hosp Tenom. I was contacted by Queen Elizabeth’s bolld bank unit , that my blood is a match with this child, and she needed the blood urgently. So i went.
I give my blood to this beautiful child, with a prayer for her health and safety. May the lord above grant her all the health she and her parents always wanted. Amen.
