Jimmy Akin’s Interesting Guide to Lent

“Annual Lent Fight Update!” by Jimmy Akin Wednesday, March 09, 2011 12:34 AM Comments (3) (Published by permission from the National Catholic Register 

In the years I have been maintaining my personal blog (www.jimmyakin.org), I have uploaded something over 4700 posts (according to current statistics). This makes it a bit hard to remember everything I’ve put up.

Fortunately, I have the memories of readers to remind me, and one reader in particular has reminded me that there are some posts that I had forgotten to include in the Annual Lent Fight that I uploaded yesterday.

These posts concern, in particular, the Church’s laws concerning Ash Wednesday and its laws regarding fasting.

As a result, I’ve done some link updating.

Since Ash Wednesday is a day of both fast and abstinence, I have chosen to repeat here the relevant links, along with this introductory note citing the main differences.

I hope this helps, and I wish all a tranquil and spiritually productive season of Lent.
