Traditional Law of Fast and Abstinence

Fast. All persons over twenty-one and under sixty years of age must fast on days appointed. On a day of fast one full meal may be eaten at the principal meal and two smaller meatless meals - the combination of which may not equal the amount eaten at the principal meal. Eating between meals is not allowed. Liquids, such as milk and fruit juices may be taken any time on a fast day. Please note that true medicine never breaks the fast including the Eucharist fast.

Days of Fast are the weekdays of Lent including Holy Saturday until 12:00 Noon; Ember Days, the Vigil of Pentecost, the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception, the Vigil of All Saints' Day, and the Vigil of Christmas.

Abstinence. All persons over seven years of age must abstain from meat on days appointed. On days of complete abstinence i.e., all Fridays, Ash Wednesday, the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception, and the Vigil of Christmas they must abstain from meat, meat gravy, or soup made with meat. On days of partial abstinence meat is allowed once a day but, only at the principal meal. Days of partial abstinence are Ember Wednesday and Saturday, the Vigil of Pentecost, and the Vigil of All Saints' Day.
