Catechism question
#1
Hello! 

I have been reading the Catechism of the Council of Trent and the instruction on the use of marriage states that the married should abstain at least 3 days before Communion.  Are we bound to follow this?

I highly doubt it.  I know that Orthodox clergy abstain the day before the Divine Liturgy.  I have never heard this rule applied to Catholic laity, let alone three days.
The Gospel is traditional.
