I think the fasting rules listed on Holy Incarnation's website need to be updated. It lists Lenten fasting days as being "fasting without abstinence" except Fridays where it's both. However, the Ordo for 2013 officially says, "Fasting includes that of Abstinence
, and adds special requirements of its own. It affects both the kind and the quantity
of food. On Fasting days, besides the obligation of abstaining from flesh-meat, the number and quantity of meals are restricted.
" It goes on to say, "DAYS OF FASTING include:
1. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Advent;
2. Every day in Lent
Just wanted to clarify that
This seems to bring the Western fasting rules more in line with the Eastern, no?
