The Diet Post DARWINCATHOLIC - March 7, 2016 So I said I'd tell you about my diet, and I will. Here is what it boils down to: if I ever want to get pregnant again, then in prudence I need to lose weight. Not because I think I'm fat, although I still weigh twenty pounds more than I did when I conceived William, but because the high blood pressure issues which have progressed with each pregnancy mean that I simply need to start at a lower base weight to avoid extra stress on my veins, and on my system ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2016/03/the-diet-post.html

The church has made exceptions — at ...http://skellmeyer.blogspot.com/2016/03/why-we-eat-fish-and-muskrat-on-lenten.html

Did Catholics Forbid Meat to Support the Fishing Industry, or Protestants? SERVANT AND STEWARD - March 2, 2016 At some point in your life you have probably been told that the only reason Catholics eat fish on Fridays - at least during the season of Lent - is because a medieval pope - who is never named - had family in the fishing industry - which is also never named - and they needed a financial boost. This claim, of course, is false and is made by those ignorant of history. I have recently finished reading Ian Mortimer's enjoyable and educational ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/5ERo0ZZ_NwE/did-catholics-forbid-meat-to-support.html

Meat and Mortal Sin MT CATHOLIC - February 14, 2016 ... meat on Fridays, so I did my best to relay my understanding. I told her that we abstain from meat on Fridays first and foremost to remember Jesus Christ's sacrifice that he made for us. His flesh and bone was whipped, beaten, spit on and finally hung on a cross until his body gave its last breath. In our abstaining from meat on Fridays during Lent we are called to remember that ultimate sacrifice made for all humankind. It's a ...http://mtcatholic.blogspot.com/2016/02/meat-and-mortal-sin.html

Friday After Ash Wednesday Καθολικός διάκονος - February 12, 2016 ... you holy. Isaiah took at least the elites of ancient Israel to task to observing days of fasting, but making their servants and employees labor hard on those days. He addressed those who thought their fasting alone gained them favor with God. Isaiah even taunted them a bit by imagining those he addressed complaining to God, as saying, "Why do we fast, and you do not see it? Afflict ourselves, and you take no note of it?" (Isa 58:3) Too often ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/02/friday-after-ash-wednesday.html

Ash Wednesday FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - February 10, 2016 Remember, man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return. Our forty days of penance commence with the reception of blessed ashes. The words from the book of Genesis (3:19) help us to think of the shortness of life, of our last end, and of that moment when each shall come before God to be judged. "Remember," wrote Saint Teresa of Avila, "that you have only one life, which is short and has to be lived ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2016/02/ash-wednesday.html

Fish, a Sign of God's Mercy SERVANT AND STEWARD - February 8, 2016 If you are a Catholic who lives your faith in public (as every Catholic should), you are likely to be asked this week a question along these lines: Why do you eat fish but not meat? Or, perhaps, you may be asked this question: Isn't fish a kind of meat? Unfortunately, many Catholics do not know how to adequately answer these questions.

Of course, the best suggestion I can give you is to try to attend Holy Mass daily and pray the Holy Rosary daily and/or with your family. 1. Drink only water during the week and Saturday.

For those of you who just put away the last of your Christmas decorations on Candlemas it may seem particularly weird when Lent comes so early.

Collop Monday CATHOLIC CUISINE - February 5, 2016 With Lent starting next week, it is a good time to talk about those food related days preceding. The Monday before Ash Wednesday has a variety of names: Rose Monday, Shrove Monday, Merry Monday or Hall Monday (short for "hallow" – holy). Another name is Collop Monday. It is rather overlooked these days while Shrove Tuesday gets all the focus. The collops for which it is named, refer to slices of meat, often cured meats such as bacon.

Should I Fast While Pregnant or Nursing During Lent? A WOMAN'S PLACE... - February 3, 2016 ... this post in 2011 and while I would change parts of it if I were writing it today (I'm definitely more aware of how difficult it is to give up meat when you have other major dietary restrictions), it's a topic that I still see come up every year around this time and I thought it would be the perfect time to repost it. And while I don't stress it in this post because I was so focused on nursing when I wrote it, the same ...http://www.cammiediane.com/2016/02/should-i-fast-while-pregnant-or-nursing.html
