3. Remember to keep holy the Lord's
Do I try to keep Sunday as a day of prayer,
rest, and relaxation, avoiding unnecessary
work? Have I deliberately come late or left
early from Mass without a good reason?
4. Honor your father and your mother.
Do I honor and respect my parents? Have
I deliberately hurt my parents? Do I treat
my children with love and respect? Do I
support and care for the well-being of all
family members? Have I neglected family
duties? Do I honor and obey my lawful superiors?
5. You shall not kill.
Have I deliberately harmed anyone? Have
I had an abortion or encouraged an abortion? Have I attempted suicide or seriously
considered it? Have I abused drugs or alcohol? Have I led anyone to sin through
bad example or through direct encouragement?
6. You shall not commit adultery.
For the married: Am I faithful to my spouse
in thought and action? Have I used artificial contraception, or been sterilized? Was
I married outside the Church without
proper permission of the Church?
For the unmarried: Have I engaged in sexual activity with anyone of either sex?
For all: Have I deliberately viewed pornographic magazines, videos or internet
websites? Have I done impure actions
alone or with another? Have I used impure
language or told impure jokes? Do I dress
7. You shall not steal.
Have I stolen or accepted stolen goods?
Have I deliberately destroyed the property
of others?
Have I cheated anyone of what I owe? Do
I gamble excessively? Do I share what I
have with the poor and the Church according to my means? Have I pirated materials:
videos, music, software?
The conclusion is next week.

2nd Sunday of Lent
“Here I am!, he answered.” - Genesis 22:11
It is easy to say, “Here I am, Lord,” when we are kneeling in church. Can we just as easily answer, “Here I am,
Lord,” when we go home, when a neighbor needs our
help, when a fellow parishioner asks us to join a committee, or when aletter asks for our financial help?
These are often exactly the places where Jesus calls us
to be.
1.The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. If possible, the fast on
Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy
Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus and to prepare ourselves
to share more fully and to celebrate more readily His
Resurrection. The other Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence.
On a day of fast, only one full meal is permitted and two
smaller meals which, if added together, would not exceed
the main meal.
Those between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast.
On a day of Abstinence, no meat may be eaten. Those
who have reached the age of 14 are obliged by the law of
2. The obligation to observe the laws of fast and Abstinence “substantially”, or as a whole, is a serious obligation.
3. The Fridays of the year, outside of Lent, are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other
practice of voluntary self—denial as penance.
4. The time for fulfilling the Paschal Precept (Easter
Duty*) extends from the First Sunday of Lent, February
22, 2015 to The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity,
May 31, 2015.
* Canon 920, 1. All the faithful, after they have been
initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, are bound by the
obligation of receiving Communion at least once a year.
