Anyone fasting this advent?
#11
There aren't any parishes around here that use the Julian calendar, but  my prayer life has been tied to it for awhile now so I feel right keeping to it. It would be cool to have a Russian Catholic parish using the old style calendar around here but I'm not that lucky.

I'll probably spend new style Christmas with my best friend and her mom,and I'll eat whatever they are having because I'm not one to fuss over things because of a fast. These folks are like family to me, and I'm the only religious one amongst them.  I suppose I'll just go back to fasting afterwards.

We"ll see how this Julian calendar thing goes,it's my first year doing it,and it's mostly because the  Prayerbook I'm using and the website I get the readings and Troparia from are on it, not for some dogmatic reason.
