In my home, we already don’t eat sugar (not just not white sugar – no sweetened foods… nor stevia, nor sugar-substitutes, like those yellow or blue packages).  Personal tastes, we each came to realize that we feel better without sugary foods.

We do like good wine… and that’s the give-up for Lent.  Also, meat, although we already eat mostly meatless.

Eta: Although, supposedly, “technically Catholic” is a misnomer (I think it’s expressive of an attitude toward one’s home-faith – meaning neither agnostic, nor fervent… and, maybe doubtful) that is the group to which my Best Friend, who shares a home with me, belongs.  And so – yup it’s frequently the case – observing Lent matters more to him, than it does for me.  (I know what I believe… where I stand inn my belief.  Practicing certain acts can truly strengthen one’s sense of what one believes, but, first, there’s knowing: this is what I believe.)

So sorry, to anyone annnoyed by my very long PS/ aka eta.  Wholeheartedly so.  I so very much hope soneome else adds their thoughts, here.

I understand. 

Sorry, i just thought maybe there is some precise astrological period, concerning the fact that everything in religion is actually coming from ancient astrology science. I come from orthodox oriented place, so for me it starts on 19th of February. 

Thanks anyway. 

P.S.

Thank you for your blogs, i am daily reader!

Actually (laughing – I’m Catholic AND fascinated with astrology) the date for Easter, and thus the date for the beginning of Lent, 40 days previous to Easter, was designed to NOT correspond with the Moon’s aspects to the Sun.  Outside – on purpose – to astrology.  It’s designed to be an exercise of 12th house nature… Imo – an exercise in letting go of wanting, and so listening to the greater sense of what’s right, now.  Imo, yanno?
