Bring your A-game for IHS…

Holy Week Monday – Thursday Fast – Partial Abstinence. Friday Saturday Fast – Abstinence

Holy_Face_of_Jesus11Holy Monday through Holy Thursday it is Fast (1 Full Meal + 2 Small Meals) & Partial Abstinence (Only Meat at Main Meal).

Good Friday and Holy Saturday it is Fast (1 Full Meal + 2 Small Meals) and Abstinence (NO MEAT at All)

There will be the usual swarms of “CEO Catholics” (Christmas-Easter Only Catholics) next weekend, so now is the time to devote special attention to the Lord’s passionate mercy for us all. In other words, you can make this a truly Holy Week, or just be Wholly Weak.

    I like your game plan and will try to abide by it myself, but you know that only Good Friday is a mandatory fast day and also the only day that is mandatory abstinence. Just so that people realize they are not sinning if they do not fast or eat meat on any day except Good Friday.

  2. True enough. I’ve been in a weightlifting “season” for the past few months, so even eating “like a normal person” during Holy Week is a challenge in its own right for me. Heh.

    Happy Easter to you and your family Elliot! 🙂

  4. Thank you, Tony, same to you!
