    As these pages load, we invite you to say as many Hail Mary's as necessary. You can click on the Rosary button to the left as well to see the Rosary Prayers in English, Latin and Spanish. We pray you will be imbued by the truths of the authentic Catholic Faith we provide here and yearn to learn more of the infrangible truths of the One and only Church founded by Jesus Christ.

   To the right we provide a unique feature for Lent and that is the VerbumQUO for most of the days during Lent up to Maundy Thursday. This series highlights one word from the Proper of the day's Mass. We have taken the Latin Verbum and Quotidianum, which mean respectively "Word" and "Daily", and have coined the word "Verbumquo" by contracting quotidianum to quo and running it together as VerbumQUO for this feature series, thus "The Daily Word," as in the sum of the message, the 'quotient', if you will. It is also our hope that in choosing the Latin word with its meaning and etymology more will be attuned to hearing the word read at the altar and better comprehend the beauty of the Mother tongue. Hopefully in this Time of Penance, Reparation, Self-sacrifice and Almsgiving, we can gain a higher appreciation and contemplation on how the Daily Proper of the Holy Mass applies in our lives in alignment with the will of Christ and His Blessed Immaculate Mother and His Mystical Bride, His Holy Catholic Church. Just click on each day to the right.


Below you will find the Daily Propers for each Mass from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday in our Lenten Daily Propers.


   Again, for our Lenten edition we are concentrating on the spiritual and devotional aspects in providing all you will need to help you make a better Lent. Therefore, we are suspending all new features throughout Lent on this page, but urge you, when you have completed your Lenten devotions each day, to research archived pages on The DailyCatholic.

   We remind all that one of the exercises for Lent is Almsgiving and pray you will do your part by clicking on the Donation. Whatever you can send will be most appreciated. We want to thank those who have contributed to helping keep The DailyCatholic on line. Again, we ask if you cannot make a donation during Lent, to at least select The DailyCatholic or SANCTUS on your GoodSearch.com or GoodShop.com pages. May we all have a blessed, fruitful and grace-filled Lent as penance and reparation become the focus of this holy penitential season. Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris.


   Everyone between 21 and 59 years of age is bound to observe the law of fast. The days of fast are all the days in Lent, all days of partial abstinence except Sundays. On days of fast only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength may be taken according to each one's need, but together they should not equal another full meal. Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast except on days of complete abstinence. Eating between meals is not permitted but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, consult your parish priest or confessor.
    (Adopted by the heirarchy of the United States, November 1958)

       
  Everyone over 7 years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence. Complete abstinence is to be observed on Fridays, Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday and the Vigils of the Immaculate Conception (December 7) and Christmas (December 24). On days of complete abstinence, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may not be used at all. Partial abstinence is to be observed on Ember Wednesdays and Saturdays and the vigil of Pentecost (Saturday before). On days of partial abstinence, (which are all the days of Lent for those bound by the laws of fasting) which are not complete abstinence days or Sundays, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken only once a day at the principal meal.

Beginning on February 17, which this year is Ash Wednesday, in addition to Lenten devotions, one can gain graces by observing the 30 Day Novena to St. Joseph leading up to his Double of the First Class Feast on March 19. There are a number of prayers and ejaculations that can be said in honoring and imploring the Patron of the Universal Church. See, Novena to St. Joseph
