Questions of Faith: Do we really have to fast during Lent?
(Vatican Radio) Do we really have to fast during Lent? Why is Lent not mentioned in
the Bible? Why is it 40 days long? And what do Vatican Officials give up as part of
their Lenten sacrifice?
These are the questions, big and small, that our very
own official from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Monsignor
John Kennedy, answers in this special episode of our series for the Year of Faith
focusing on Lent. Listen:
a reminder to all of our readers and listeners that you can send in your own questions
about the faith to Mons. Kennedy by posting them or private messaging them to our
Vatican Radio – English Section Facebook page and tuning in each week for the answers
to your Questions of Faith.
