WWW.HOLYMASS.SKSTRICT FRIDAY FASTING AND ABSTINENCE FOR NEXT 8 CONSECUTIVE FRIDAYS
Bishops of Slovakia announced for all Catholics in Slovakia a strict fasting and abstinence for next 8 Fridays starting October 30 until December 18.
The purpose is to avert the effects of pandemic disease.
All Fridays should be observed the same way we observe fasting and abstinence on Good Friday.
For everyone who is between the ages 18 - 60, it means to eat only full meal during the day and two smaller meals.
Abstaining from meat is binding for everyone.
If someone is not able to keep this strict form of fasting and abstinence due to some health issues, such person can substitute it for some time of focused, generous prayer or alms-giving.
