Prayer and Fasting

Friday is a special day of prayer and sacrifice in the Church. We are called to abstain from meat, or, more recently, to sacrifice in another way, in commemoration of Christ's suffering and death.

Let us make a renewed effort to follow this Church discipline and make Friday a day of penance for all our loved ones who have lost their faith.

"But this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting" ~Matthew 17:21
