  • Eucharistic Fasting – 
  • 1953 and then again in 1957 – this was changed
  • Just because these practices were done away with, doesn’t mean devout Catholics can’t do this type of fasting our fore fathers did.
  • Telegram Group – The Fellowship of St Nicholas
  • Lent is a badge of Christian Honor 
  • 1741 Pope Benedict the 14th – What was going on that was taxing the daily life of someone in Christendom.

If the Church says FASTING – what does the Church actually mean?

FASTING – how much and how often you are eating (ie one meal a day)

ABSTINENCE – what you can and cannot eat (ie on Friday’s no meat on that day)
