upcoming traditional fast days
« on: October 25, 2020, 12:55:08 PM »
Oct 28 is the feast of Sts. Simon and Jude.  Not too long ago, the vigil (Oct 27) as a fast day. 

Oct 31 is the vigil of All Saints (which somehow sounds more Catholic than Halloween) which is still a fast day recommended to SSPX associates, for example.
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.

Yes, the Advent Ember Days: December 16, 18, and 19

Ember Days Folklore:
According to folklore, the weather conditions of each of the three days of an Embertide foretells the weather conditions for the following three months.

In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Didn't all of  Advent used to be a time of fasting?  Like a mini-lent?

Yes, and it was longer, on par with Lent.

It still is in the Byzantine tradition—40 days from November 15 to Christmas. It is less strict than Great Lent, though.
[*I realize that I haven't mentioned it, but in the interest of transparency if I engage in a discussion, I joined the Orthodox Church toward the end of last year.*]

How awe-inspiring is your childbearing, O immaculate one, by which we have all been delivered from the terrible Fall! We cry aloud: Rejoice, O intercessor for all men! Rejoice, O restoration of the fallen world!

Tomorrow (Dec 7) is the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception and a traditional fast day.  It is currently kept by priests and brothers of the SSPX.

Thank you, it had escaped me this year so luckily I'm still in time to do it.

"These fasts traditionally take place on the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday following St Lucy's Day (13 December), the first Sunday in Lent, Pentecost (Whitsun), and Holy Cross Day (14 September)."

Is this what we are following?

Yes, but I've always seen the second group associated with the week after Ash Wednesday, which is technically the same as after first Sunday in Lent.  I remember them as follows:  Lucy, Ash, Dove, Cross :)

So I guess the traditional "Ash" fast is Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of this week, or is it next week?

And according to this tread the fast is on Wednesdays and Fridays for the rest of Lent.
