Is Today A Day of Fasting?
#1
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?
Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos, o Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, for thou hast borne the Saviour and the Redeemer of our souls!

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

"There are in truth three states of the converted: the beginning,  the middle and the perfection. In the beginning, they experience the charms of sweetness; in the middle, the contests of temptation; and in the end, the fullness of perfection."
-- Pope St. Gregory

“One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, Our Lady will save the world.”
-- attributed to Saint Domenic

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.  ;)
