Advent Ember Days start TODAY December 16, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in General Catholic, Liturgical Year.
Sorry for the late reminder, it generally helps to give some notice prior to the actual start of something like this, but I forgot. The Advent Ember Days start today. Partial fast and abstinence today and Saturday, fast and abstinence on Friday. Wednesday and Saturday are commonly called days of partial fast because instead of a total fast, you are permitted one full meal and two snacks. It is partial abstinence because you can have meat with one meal.
