Lenten Observances 2014

The Most Revered Bishop A. Elias Zaidan has issued the following Lenten guidelines for the Maronites of the United
States:

All Maronites who are physically capable are to abstain from meat on Ash Monday (March 3, 2014) and all Fridays of Lent. Ash Monday and the Great Friday of the Crucifixion are also days of fasting.

Fasting in the Maronite Church involves eating and drinking nothing at all (except water and medicine) from midnight until noon. The rest of the day normal meals can be taken, but without meat. All Maronites who are physically capable are to fast on these two days.
