Fasting in the Orthodox Church
General Guidelines for Fasting 2011
The guiding rule of the Fathers - never eat to the point of feeling full but rise from the table knowing that more could be taken and one is ready for prayer.
Fasting is never required when there are health issues that require the eating of certain foods.
Parents decide what age to begin a child fasting from foods. More importantly is teaching the fasting from behaviors not pleasing to God.
Foods allowed during Lent - this is considered Strict Fast
A vegetarian diet including but not limited to bread, grains, vegetables, soup, tofu, fruits, nuts, beans, shellfish, octopus, squid, juice, coffee, tea or water.
Foods not allowed during Great Lent:
All meat, poultry, fish, olive oil (vegetable oil is allowed), dairy products, cheese, milk, butter, eggs, and alcoholic beverages. Fish & olive oil are allowed on March 25 (Feast of the Annunciation) and Palm Sunday, April 17, 2011.
Days on which the number of meals is limited:
It is customary to limit the number of strict fast meals on Clean Monday (the first day of Lent, March 7, 2011), and on any day that you are preparing to receive Communion at a Presanctified liturgy.
Preparing for Presanctified Liturgies in the late afternoon:
There are three ways to prepare depending upon your personal abilities.
• If you are able - keep complete fast the entire day and have a meal after the Liturgy
• Or have a fast worthy breakfast, no lunch followed by a meal after the Liturgy
• Or have a fast worthy breakfast followed by a light lunch and a meal after the Liturgy.
Fasting Recommendation for Assumption Parishioners
Level I is recommended for those who never or rarely keep the fast throughout the year on Wednesdays and Fridays.
• Start by not eating any meat the first week of Lent and during Holy Week.
• Do not eat meat every Wednesday and Friday during Lent.
• Attempt to continue the Wednesday, Friday fast throughout the rest of the year and graduate next year to Level II.
Level II is recommended for those who keep the fast on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year but rarely follow a strict fast including dairy products and fish.
• 40 days no meat, plus all of Holy Week
• Dairy products & fish are allowed but not on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Level III is the ideal for those who fast throughout the year.
• 40 days of Lent and Holy Week are kept as a strict fast.
You may create your own guidelines that may be a combination of the above recommendations, please consult your priest if you have questions.

Thanks.

I didn't really care, but Seraphima thinks it's really important that I know the Orthodox don't eat the fish they sell here in Omaha.

Nothing to do with Jack Chick.

Avro Manhattan...
Born in Milan, Italy on April 6, 1914 to American and Swiss/Dutch parents of Jewish extraction, Manhattan was educated at the Sorbonne and the London School of Economics.

During World War II, Manhattan was jailed in Italy for refusing to serve in Benito Mussolini's fascist army.

Later during the war, he operated a radio station called "Radio Freedom" broadcasting to nations occupied by the Axis Powers.

For this service he was made a Knight of Malta.

His friends included H G Wells, Pablo Picasso, George Bernard Shaw and scientist Marie Stopes.

Manhattan spent much of his later life after 1979 at the ornately decorated home of his wife's late mother in South Shields, North East England.

Jack Chick? Nowhere to be seen! You are wrong again, Dan.

Now go study your catechism.

Dang it all anyway. But have faith that whatever happens, it must be accepted as Jehovah's will. It was written by some old "moldy" theologians, so it must be true.

Play In Pain

June 19, 2013 — by David C. Egner

Our Daily Bread


Read: Lamentations 3:1-3, 25-33

Though He causes grief, yet He will show compassion.—Lamentations 3:32

Nehemiah 12-13; Acts 4:23-37

Baseball Hall-of-Fame catcher Gary Carter was a follower of Jesus. During his 19-year career, he drew strength and endurance from his faith in God to compete day after day. In an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal shortly after Carter died of brain cancer at age 57, writer Andrew Klavan told how Carter had influenced his life.

In the late 1980s, Klavan had sunk to a low point in his life. His mind dwelt on suicide. Then he heard Carter interviewed after a game. His team, the New York Mets, had won, and the aging catcher had helped by running hard at a critical point in the game. Carter was asked how he could do that with his aching knees. Klavan heard him say something like this:“Sometimes you just have to play in pain.” That simple statement helped draw Klavan out of his depression.“I can do that!” he declared. Encouraged, he found hope—and later became a believer in Christ.

The comforting truth behind Carter’s statement comes from Lamentations. We may face sorrow, pain, and hardship, but we don’t have to sink into self-pity. The same God who allows our suffering also showers us with His compassion (Lam. 3:32). With God’s love lifting us up, we can—if we have to—“play” in pain.
Along life’s pathway troubles come
That God will help us bear;
Then we can look beyond the pain
To those who need our care.—Branon

God will either spare you from suffering or give you the grace to bear it.

I will double my bet and raise the odds that you will okay one of your "tradition" cards....which the pope regurgitated and you swallowed it whole...licked your lips and said: Dang!!!! that was tasty!!!!
BTW..Joseph soiled her vessel....many many times: Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife...

Concerning what remain mysteries, I don't trust anyone to tell the truth.

Bragging about having solved mysteries when there is no proof one way or the other ... is a fool's game.

When all the starving babies, children and adults have daily bread, they can also be thankful for THEIR daily bread.

Until then, your thankfulness is based on the idea that your prayers are answered, and their prayers are denied.

If a god cared there would be NO suffering for cats, or any other forms of life.

So why do you ask your image of a god TO care, when if care by a supposed all-powerful deity existed, suffering would NOT exist?

Bible Verse of the Day

20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Jerome (one man) translated the whole bible.

How fascinating that people would believe he got all the meanings exactly the way the previous authors had intended them to be read.

Many people of the era believed the vulgate to be blasphemy. And so it went and so it goes. Gossip and more gossip taught as truth.
