Is Today A Day of Fasting? - Justin Alphonsus - 12-08-2017

I was under the impression that today as a Friday would not be a day of abstinence since it is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception?

Is this correct?

Per the 1962 Ordo today is NOT a day of fasting. SSPX has their ordo online for free see link below:

Days of solemnity are not fasting days.

I follow the simple rule that if it's a feast day, then it's not a fast day.

Solemnities, which are the NO version of Doubles of the I Class or I Class Feasts, are not fast days.

They're not the same, though, such as 1 July, since the I Class Feast of the Most Precious Blood has been suppressed, so the day is not a Solemnity.


Quote:Can. 1251 Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

Same here though sushi after six o'clock Mass wasn't much of a hardship for me somehow.  ;)
