Sa akin, di kaya pag walang food kasi kahinaan ko iyon eh.
I could give up my pleasures in life and also gigising na muna ako palagi ng umaga ngayon kasi palagi kong gising nung di pa lent ay 10 am na. Ngayon mas maaga na dapat at hindi mga 9:59 am di ba? :)

umm, ako siguro e alang igigive up kundi
doing more...

more prayers...medyo nakakalimutan ko nang kumausap at magpasalamat sa KANYA e....excuse e laging pagod....tinatamad :-\

more service...for the past few weeks, i've realized na parang nagiging selfish na ako...same excuse at the first one

more love...para kasing di ko narerealize ito. Work! Work! and money...parang nagiging center na ito ng buhay ko sa ngayon...failing to realize that the best things in life comes from LOVE.

yun siguro...

to qoute the priest nung ash wednesday noon mass service sa greenbelt...

"SACRIFICE is not to make ill of one's self ....but to make HOLY..."

To give up something or to "ABSTAIN" from something you love to do, yun ang magandang gawin.

Pano yan ang love ko ay ang mag tugtog sa church (hehehe) joke lang, marami pang work coz we're now starting songs for EASTER this early e.

Tama si Jon2, dagdagan pa dapat ang PRAYERS as I ask you to please pray for me also, if Im not asking to much kase marameng trabaho e both sa office at sa church. :D

May kliyente akong nagkwento noon Friday...

Yung pari raw sa kanila may sinabing GOOD NEWS BAD NEWS:

Good news- wala na raw abstinence tuwing Friday of Lent

Bad news- tatlong araw na lang raw ang abstinence

1. Ash Wednesday
2. Good Friday

and...

3. CHRISTMAS DAY raw!!!!!

paki-verify naman ito, anyone? ???
Paano na ang lechon? Ang hamon? Ang Family Reunion malungkot na?

kuya jon, lagi kang nagsisimba sa greenbelt?

ewan ko lang kung sacrifice to pero every friday akong magsisimba sa greenbelt for the whole season of lent. tsaka way of the cross din.

Canon 1251 Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

For further reading click http://www.trosch.org/for/the/abs-main.htm

Lent
When should fasting and abstinence be observed?
Canon 1249: All Christ's faithful are obliged by divine law, each in his or her own way, to do penance. However, so that all may be joined together in a certain common practice of penance, days of penance are prescribed.
Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Those ages 14 (from day following 14th birthday) through lifetime are obliged to abstain. Persons age 18 (beginning the day following 18th birthday) until and including 59th birthday are bound by the FASTING obligation.

Reasonable naman po na di talaga dapat mag fasting pag Christmas kse dapat e nagsasaya sa pagsilang ng Mesiyas.

Imbes na fasting, FAST-EATING hehehe :D

Jon2
04.03.18, 06:43 PM
I think for this lent... make something na pag end nitong season e you'll feel enlightened and great dahil once sa taon na ito....you've done something less yet it made you become more complete

actually, it's more like having a goal like running a few kilometers at pag andun ka na sa finish line e napakasarap ng feeling dahil you've made it...

anyway, lent has started... have you? ;)

Kaso parang napalala. Dapat pala lahat ng byernes mag-abstain. Ganun ba yon? ???

Lenten Question

Q: Why is giving up something for Lent such a salutary custom?
A: By denying ourselves something we enjoy, we discipline our wills so that we are not slaves to our pleasures. Just as indulging the pleasure of eating leads to physical flabbiness and, if this is great enough, an inability to perform in physically demanding situations, indulging in pleasure in general leads to spiritual flabbiness and, if this is great enough, an inability to perform in spiritually demanding situations, when the demands of morality require us to sacrifice something pleasurable (such as sex before marriage or not within the confines of marriage) or endure hardship (such as being scorned or persecuted for the faith). By disciplining the will to refuse pleasures when they are not sinful, a habit is developed which allows the will to refuse pleasures when they are sinful. There are few better ways to keep one's priorities straight than by periodically denying ourselves things of lesser priority to show us that they are not necessary and focus our attention on what is necessary.

Um... for the moment, I'm trying to cut down my computer time. Hindi ko siya as in tinatanggal kasi minsan I really have to use the computer.

Sinubukan kong magfasting, kaya lang ang kulit kasi ng lolo ko, ehehe, kinukulit akong kumain, dahil kung hindi, baka sabihin niya sa Nanay ko. Isang araw pa lang ako nakapag-fast na as in fast talaga = 1 full meal lang. Okay naman. Kung puwede ngang ituloy, itutuloy ko.

jefflyceum
06.03.27, 12:30 PM
sabi nga ni Christ, "a man does not turn unclean by what he eats, but by the things that comes out from his mouth." it is better to eat a lot, or maybe not that much, than not turning yourself in because of the sins we commit. self-discpline might be a strategy to bu used for fasting. basta, quit the things that is not worthy to be submitted to God, our Father, like sinning. and keep it that way, even Lent is over. sayang ang pinaguran nating pag-aanuyo kung inuulit natin ginagawa ang mga masasamang gawain sa araw-araw nating pamumuhay.

share ko na rin po. my sister told me na yung mga ginigive-up natin for Lent, it would be better na isipin natin na gift natin ito kay God, instead of thinking na "sacrifice". mas magiging masaya tayo na ginagawa natin ito para kay God, kesa maisip natin na ang hirap-hirap at mejo struggling talaga tayo gawin yung mga igigive up natin. :)
