St. Joseph Rocks!

We are not a family that takes a break from our Lenten fasts on Sundays.  Let me just put that out there.  I've been seeing things all over on line about how we don't have to fast from meat today because it's a solemnity.  Fair enough, what about candy?  Well, I got my answer when I opened up the email for today's edition of Holy Heroes' Lenten Adventure.  Apparently, when there's a solemnity in Lent, that feast day overrides the rules of fasting. Sweet!  Bryan was wondering about this because he wasn't willing to eat meat today since that's what he gave up for Lent, if I wasn't able to eat candy.  He didn't want to be the one to fail on his Lenten sacrifice.

Once I read the email from Holy Heroes, I decided that we needed to celebrate this wonderful solemnity.  Bryan got to eat meat and I have had a few varieties of candy.  We'll be letting Madeline know she can play the Wii tonight.  This wonderful solemnity will make the next 15 days easier to bear.
