Reflection from the Pastor:
As we approach Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent, it’s helpful to
review the Church’s regulations on the Lenten fast and abstinence. Ash
Wednesday (February 18) and Good Friday (April 3) are days of fasting.
Catholics, from the 18th birthday up to the 59th birthday are obliged to fast,
that is, to take only one full meal and two lesser meals, with nothing to eat in
between meals. The two lesser meals together should not equal the full meal.
Drinking fluids is not contrary to the practice of fasting.
Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent, including Good Friday, are
days of abstinence from meat. All Catholics, beginning with the 14th
birthday, are obliged to abstain from eating meat. There is no upper age limit
on the obligation to abstain from meat.
Although those who fall outside of the obligatory groups who must fast or
abstain from meat do not have to fast or abstain, it is praiseworthy and in the
spirit of Lenten sacrifice, as well as solidarity with your fellow Christians to
either begin the practice earlier than one must (for the young) or to continue
fasting (for older Catholics).
People who are unable to practice bodily penance, due to pregnancy,
illness or hard physical labor may choose another form of penance and
charity in consultation with your confessor.

January Knight of the Month
Dennis MacLaughlin has a wife Jan, three children; Eric, Tara
and Scott. Scott passed on to the Lord in 2013, but he will not
be forgotten due to Denny and others that worked very hard to
get a memorial to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta placed in front of
the church in his memory. Denny is a member of the
Stewardship, Finance, and Building and Grounds Committees at
Sacred Heart. He also helps count the offertory and cleans the
church when needed. Denny donates his time to help serve the
school lunch every day. It is our pleasure to recognize Dennis
MacLaughlin and his family for Knight and Family for the
Month of January 2015.

Meditación del Párroco:
A medida que nos acercamos al Miércoles de Ceniza y el inicio de la Cuaresma, es útil revisar las regulaciones de
la Iglesia sobre el ayuno cuaresmal y la abstinencia. Miércoles de Ceniza (18 de febrero) y el Viernes Santo (03 de
abril) son días de ayuno. Católicos, desde los 18 años hasta el 59a cumpleaños están obligados a ayunar, es decir,
tomar sólo una comida completa y dos comidas menores, sin nada que comer entre comidas. Las dos comidas
menores no deben ser igual a la comida completa. Tomar líquidos no es contrario a la práctica del ayuno.
Miércoles de Ceniza y todos los viernes de Cuaresma, incluyendo el Viernes Santo, son días de abstinencia de
carne. Todos los católicos, comenzando por 14 años, tienen la obligación de abstenerse de comer carne. No hay límite
de edad en la obligación de abstenerse de comer carne.
Aunque los que caen fuera de los grupos obligatorios que ayunan o debe abstenerse de comer carne no tienen que
ayunar o abstenerse, es digno de alabanza y en el espíritu de la Cuaresma sacrificio, así como la solidaridad con sus
hermanos cristianos, comenzar la práctica antes de lo uno debe (para los jóvenes) o continuar el ayuno (para los
católicos mayores).
Las personas que son incapaces de practicar la penitencia corporal, debido al embarazo, enfermedad o trabajo físico
duro pueden elegir otra forma de penitencia y caridad en consulta con su confesor.
