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: RealAudioMP3

Once again 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.
