THE GREAT FAST BEGINS MONDAY
Monday, February 15, 2010 marks the beginning of The Great Fast (Lent). The Great Forty-day Fast is a special time when we intensify our prayers and spiritual life, and make personal sacrifices through fasting, self-denial, and almsgiving (acts of charity toward others). Only through proper preparation, serious effort, and the forgiveness of our sins, can we hope to grow spiritually and properly prepare for our Lord’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection. The first day of The Great Fast and Good Friday are days of strict abstinence for Ukrainian Greek Catholics – we are not permitted to eat any meat or dairy products all day long, and we should try to limit our consumption of food. All Fridays during The Great Fast are days of mandatory abstinence from all meat products. Wednesdays are also suggested as days of voluntary abstinence from meat products. Our fasting regulations are optional only for persons older than 59 and younger than 7. Everyone else is obliged to follow the rules of abstinence of our Church.
The week days of the Great Fast are aliturgical whereas no Divine Liturgy should be celebrated except for the Feast of the Annunciation. On Wednesday and Friday of the Great Fast, The Liturgy of Presanctified gifts is to be celebrated.
The Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great is to be celebrated for Sunday Liturgies during this time.
During Holy Week the Liturgy of the Presanctified gifts is to be celebrated Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. There is no Divine Liturgy celebrated on Good Friday or Holy Saturday. On Holy Saturday, Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great is to be celebrated.
