The Nativity Fast PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - November 16, 2014 ... lots of trouble with fasting. The most we fast in the Catholic tradition is one hour before Eucharist, with effectively becomes no fast because we are in Mass about 30-40 minutes before receiving Eucharist, so it pretty much becomes, "Do not eat on the way to Mass." The other required fast is meatless Fridays during Lent and to eat only one meal on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. That is pretty simple for me. I can handle that. But today, I am faced with the prospect of a ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-nativity-fast.html

Nativity Fast: 40 Days of Fasting for Christmas A CATHOLIC LIFE - November 15, 2014 November 15th in the Eastern Rite Churches begins the Nativity Fast. This 40-day long period fasting is a preparation for the holy celebration of Christmas.

DPPL 126: A Harmony of Lenten Piety and Liturgy CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - November 14, 2014 ... first Sunday of Lent). Perhaps the most common complaint about Lenten fasting practices (other than their relative weakness compared to former days) is that they can become mindless gestures. We don't think about giving up sweets. For forty-four days we can accomplish it. Then the rest of the year, we forget that we do not live on bread–or chocolate–alone. I think this is a matter less of finding something harder to give up, but to cultivate a mindfulness about ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/11/14/dppl-126-a-harmony-of-lenten-piety-and-liturgy/

DPPL 124: Lent Begins CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - November 12, 2014 ... fasting and good works (cf. Mt 6, 1-6. 16-18). Note that Lent has a purpose of its own, that it is not just a period of preparation for Easter. Popular piety does not easily perceive the mystical aspect of Lent and does not emphasize any of its great themes or values, such a relationship between "the sacrament of forty days" and "the sacraments of Christian initiation", nor the mystery of the "exodus" which is always present in the lenten journey. Popular piety concentrates on ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/11/12/dppl-124-lent-begins/

Praying for Your Future Husband THE CATHOLIC YOUNG WOMAN - November 9, 2014 ... gifts I can give him now (and, of course, then). So, pray, dear sisters. Pray hard and take every opportunity to offer a small sacrifice. Your man is alive today and is subject to every temptation the world has to offer. He needs your prayers; needs them desperately. Every little prayerful sacrifice of dying to yourself allows the Holy Spirit to transform you little by little into the woman that God created you to be. Live abundantly, and God will greatly reward you both. I came that they may ...http://catholicyoungwoman.blogspot.com/2014/11/praying-for-your-future-husband.html

When Spiritual Warfare Is Friendly Fire BYZANTINE, TEXAS - November 4, 2014 As the Church finds itself about to cross under the lintel of a new fasting period I find myself reflecting on how the disciplines of the Church are chum for spiritual warfare. I mean this, however, in a way that many wouldn't immediately suspect. Fasting is not easy for many people. It's not supposed to be. That's one of the reasons it's so efficacious. If I were to declare not flying first class an ascetic struggle people would rightly scoff. And yet we ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2014/11/when-spiritual-warfare-is-friendly-fire.html

It is good to dwell on our impending death (yes, everyone dies at one point), the Poor Souls in Purgatory, and the Sacrament of the Sick. And tied in with this theme is the saints, canonized and non-canonized. What did they do in their lives that they were able to reach heaven? How can we imitate them? How can we, like these saints, prepare our souls for death at any moment? A Prayer to be ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2014/10/celebrating-all-hallows-eve-and-its.html

So, prayer, fasting and a good sacramental life, overflowing into the spiritual and corporal works of mercy are the sine qua non .
