Precepts #2: Fasting and Abstinence
In this lesson, we explore the Church’s law on fasting and abstinence. We understand why the Church requires fasting and abstinence from meat as well as what days of the year are days of fasting and abstinence. We study the history of fasting throughout the Church and make reference to the Traditional Practices of Fasting as observed before the Second Vatican Council. Students who complete this lesson will have a full understanding of the Church’s rich history on fasting.
