The Ember Days Begin Tomorrow: a Time for Fasting

Connected to the old form of the Mass.

December 19, 2023  0

Tomorrow (Wednesday, Dec. 20) is one of the Ember Days. The Ember Days are days traditionally set aside for prayer and fasting — on a Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. There's one set of Ember Days for each of the four seasons in the northern hemisphere. In this episode of The Download, hosts Bradley Eli, Rodney Pelletier and David Nussman discuss this Catholic tradition and the importance of fasting.
