Valentine’s Day, February 14th, has a deeper meaning of love and sacrifice this year – it is also Ash Wednesday!

Since Ash Wednesday is a day of Fast (only one full meatless meal for those who are 18-60 years old) and Abstinence (no meat for those who are 14 and older), I encourage you to celebrate in a more festive way beforehand with your loved one and show your love to Jesus by entering prayerfully into the fast and sacrifice on Ash Wednesday!
