|Regina cæli, lætare, alleluia:
Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia,
Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia,
Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.
|Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia:
For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia,
Has risen, as He said, alleluia,
Pray for us to God, alleluia.

The NyonyaCelup and the Baba begin the season of Lent with a bout of food poisoning — I guess it means we’ll be putting the recipes on hold for the time being.
Most people do not realise that the season of Lent is not only a period of fasting, but one of prayer, charity, as well as preparation for the coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
And today, Ash Wednesday, marks the beginning of this solemn season: according to the gospels, Jesus spent 40 days fasting in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry.
So, in the meantime, here’s a lil’ something I found online — surprising what you can get via Google these days. 🙂
