When did Jesus realize who he was?

Jesus_145

You may have heard it bandied in this day and age that Jesus was not aware of His divinity till He was twelve years old, or thirty years old. Some say He was not aware of it until He was on the Cross. So it begs the question, what did Jesus know and when did He know it? It is important to understand what the actual teaching of the Church is on this subject and dispel all opinion on the matter, and that is what it all is, opinion. There is clear truth to this teaching and confusion on the matter need not reign, as it seems to now.

Lent & St. Joseph's Day

Lenten40Days

As you know Lent began yesterday. It is my understanding that it is a forty day journey. Easter arrives this year on 4-16-17 / more than forty days from yesterday. Could you please explain to me what days between the beginning of Lent and Easter are not days of Lent and when those days begin and end according to the Church (example: sundown to sundown)? Also, are Feast Days, for example 3-19-17, St. Joseph’s Day, any different than the average day?
