Mark 9:2-10

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Word

In today’s difficult first reading, Abraham proves his faithfulness to God, trusting the LORD completely, unlike Adam and Eve, who had turned away. God blesses Abraham with descendants too numerous to count. Each of us is one. Indeed, each of us is blessed because Jesus, God’s only Son, made the ultimate sacrifice for us and now intercedes for us. In the Gospel, he is transfigured in glory, a sign of his future place at God’s right hand.

How can I transfigure my life this Lent? What will I do to show the transfiguration Jesus has made in me?

Salmo 116
Romanos 8:31b-34
Marcos 9:2-10

Introducción a la Liturgia de la Palabra

En la difícil primera lectura de hoy Abraham demuestra su fidelidad a Dios confía completamente en el Señor, a diferencia de Adán y Eva, que se alejaron de Dios. Dios bendice a Abraham con descendientes tan numerosos que son incontables. Cada uno de nosotros es una parte de esta descendencia. Es más, cada uno de nosotros es bendecido porque Jesús, el Hijo único de Dios, hizo el sacrificio definitivo por nosotros y ahora intercede por nosotros. En el Evangelio se transfiguró en Gloria como signo de su lugar futuro a la derecha del Padre.

¿Como puedo transfigurar mi vida en esta Cuaresma? ¿Qué hare para demostrar la transfiguración que Jesús ha hecho en mí?

LENTEN REGULATIONS 2021

Fast & Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.

For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.

Members of the Eastern Catholic Churches are to observe the particular law of their own sui iuris Church.

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.

REGLAMENTOS DE CUARESMA 2021

Ayuno y Abstinencia

El Miércoles de Ceniza y el Viernes Santo son días obligatorios de ayuno y abstinencia para los católicos. Además, los viernes durante la Cuaresma son días obligatorios de abstinencia.

Para los miembros de la Iglesia de rito latino, las normas son obligatorias desde la edad de 18 años hasta los 59. Cuando se ayuna, se le permite a la persona comer una comida completa, así como dos comidas más pequeñas que juntas no equivalgan a una comida completa. Las normas sobre la abstinencia de carne son vinculantes para los miembros de la iglesia católica de rito latino desde los 14 años en adelante.

Los miembros de la iglesia católica de rito oriental deben observer la ley propia de su iglesia sui iuris.

Si es posible, el ayuno del Viernes Santo se continúa hasta la Vigilia Pascual (la noche del Sábado Santo) como el “ayuno pascual” para honrar el sufrimiento y la muerte del Señor Jesús y prepararnos para compartir más plenamente y celebrar más apropiadamente su Resurrección.
