As the title states, I'm new to fasting In the Byzantine tradition, and I have refrained from meat and dairy every day except the past two Sundays, but today I had my mothers salmon and a little egg in my fried rice. I'm just wondering if my feeling of guilt is me just being over scrupulous or if I have done something wrong? Does anyone have any advice or insight? Thanks!
ah you must realize jedi master that "feeling guilty" is a western feeling. Eastern feeling is seen as a path of enlightenment, that is a path to be like God, Theosis. Identify what you did wrong, try to correct it, seek forgiveness, forgive yourself. Christ said two words the most in the gospels, "love and forgive."
Plus I don't remember what the Greek Catholic fasting rules are during lent.
