HAPPY ASH WEDNESDAY

Good morning peeps!

Today, we Christians have officially began our fast.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. It helps remind us that “Dust we are from and dust we shall return”.

I honestly hope to observe this period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. It’s not going to be an easy one I tell you my friends.

One of the things that may hinder me from fasting completely is my Peptic Ulcer Disease (PUD). Lol! Some of my Christian friends will tell me I should continue despite the obvious epigastric pain I feel, that it’s the devil trying to take my glory… But No, thank you O! I don’t intend to perforate my stomach and then bleed to death and then add to WHO’s Mortality rate statistics…Mbanu! Even God will be angry with for being stupid. In a situation like mine, He would expect me to fast in moderation, meaning I might not do the whole stretch of fasting.

So my solution is to have 1 big meal, as in full meal, and then 2 really light meals, maybe with fruits.

May God grant us our humble request during this period in Jesus name. Amen

  1. That is not fasting. You can actually fast from 6 to 12. It is still ok because of the PUD and pray for permanent healing miracles still happens you know, only believe.

    • You’re wrong. The Catholic guideline for fasting stipulates that you eat one full meal in a day plus not more than half portion of the two other meals. That’s the minimum. Of course, it doesn’t mean that one cannot do more than that if you do wish without endangering your health.
