40 days for life

Ash Wednesday, February 17 to Palm Sunday, March 28

Consider walking for 40 Days for Life as a Lenten journey. This "desert" experience of walking, fasting, and prayer gives public witness to the value of every person's life as we walk peacefully in the public right-of-way outside Planned Parenthood, 2605 S. Oneida Street. More information and sign-up in the narthex.  

lenten disciplines of fasting and abstinence

 Each Catholic is asked to preserve the penitential purpose and character of Lent. Therefore:


Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and each Friday of Lent.

   

Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday, in addition to abstaining from meat, should fast, that is eat only one full meal on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Smaller quantities of food may be taken at two other meals, but no food should be consumed at other times during those two days.  The obligation of fasting ceases with the celebration of one’s 59th birthday. 

 

These practices are designed for spiritual growth. Catholics are not to excuse themselves lightly from these prescribed minimal penitential practices.

The late Congressman Henry Hyde, author of the Hyde Amendment, wrote: "When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness.  You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God - and a terror will rip through your soul like nothing you can imagine.  But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone.  I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world - and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement.  They will say to God, 'Spare him because he loved us,' - and God will look at you and say not, 'Did you succeed?' but 'Did you try?'"

Blessing of the easter food basket

An Eastern European Tradition for Holy Saturday

March 31 ~ 9:30AM

St. Agnes Church

A parishioner, Stefani Butler, brought this food blessing tradition to Fr. Patrick which will be offered here this year.

The Easter blessing of food owes its origin to the fact that the particular foods placed in the basket were forbidden in the Middle Ages during the Lenten fast and abstinence. When the feast of Easter brought the fast to an end, the people showed their joy and gratitude by taking the food to church for a blessing.

Typically a wicker basket is used with an embroidered cloth. 

The food items placed in the Easter basket have special significance. A typical Eastern European basket would include any of these foods, (although every family may have its own traditions): Bacon, Bread, Butter, Cheese, Ham, Sausage, Horseradish, Salt, Colored eggs, Sweets and a Candle. 

Tradition includes every member of the family feasting on the blessed foods on Easter Sunday.  

Bring your Easter food basket to church on Holy Saturday at 9:30AM for a blessing.
