Nativity Fast Intensifies

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Following the 12th of December, the Nativity Fast intensifies. The last two weeks of the Fast are a time of more intense prepariation. The faithful are exhorted to take advantage of the Mystery of Holy Confession. We are blessed by the Church to eat fish on the 16th and 17th of the month. Following this, there is no fish until we break the fast on the Feast of the Nativity.
