Even though I have given up soda for Lent, that is the easy part. Today, we are supossed to abstain from eating meat. I was doing good.but I have had so much on my mind and so distracted by things that I fixed cheese manacotti for breakfast. Completely forgot that it had meat in the sauce.

Fasting and Prayer for Orlando Zapata, Wilman Villar Mendoza, and Brothers to the Rescue

On the 23rd of this month, Feburary, it will be 2 years since the death of Cuban Prisoner of Conscience Orlando Zapata, who died on a hunger strike while in prison. He died fighting for a free Cuba. Last month, sadly another Cuban prisoner of conscience, Wilman Villar, died on hunger strike. The Free Cuba Foundation is calling on all people of good will to join in fasting and prayer to honor Zapata, Villar and also the four brave men of Brothers to the Rescue who were shot down by the Castro regime in International waters. All of them died struggling and fighting for a free Cuba. Please consider joining in a 24 hour fast to honor all of these brave men. You can also organize and participate in vigils and moments of silence as well. It is the least we can do to honor all who have died for a free Cuba.
