Reminder: 2017 Christmas fast

Those still following the Spanish tradition of fasting on 24 December will find a tiny problem: Christmas Eve, 24 December, falls on a Sunday this year. The allowed option for this case is to anticipate the fast. On the other hand, those making use of the 1959 indult to transfer the Christmas fast to 23 December will kill two birds with one stone: the Christmas fast itself and the fast of Ember Saturday.

Together, let us fast. Ubi ieiunium aboletur, ibi Ecclesia evanescat.

Ut in omnibus laudetur Dominus.
