Are Sundays part of Lent?

LENT

Interesting article here for us Catholics.

EXCERPTS:

Deciding to give up something during Lent at all is purely voluntary. You are free to set the conditions of your Lenten sacrifice. This means that if you decide to allow yourself to enjoy whatever it is you have given up for Lent on Sundays, you may do so. You don’t need anyone’s permission. Likewise, if you want to maintain your Lenten sacrifice straight through, with no break on Sundays, that is perfectly fine, as well. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ here.”

Also, “when a solemnity falls on a Friday during Lent (as sometimes happens with the Solemnity of St. Joseph on March 19) that abstinence is not customarily observed.”
