The Church Law of Fast and Abstinence for the US

(Adopted by the heirarchy of the United States, November 1958)

On Abstinence:

  Everyone over 7 years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence. Complete abstinence is to be observed on Fridays, Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday and the Vigils of the Immaculate Conception and Christmas. On days of complete abstinence, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may not be used at all. Partial abstinence is to be observed on Ember Wednesdays and Saturdays and the vigil of Pentecost. On days of partial abstinence meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken only once a day at the principal meal.

On Fast:

   Everyone over 21 and 59 years of age is bound to observe the law of fast. The days of fast are all the days in Lent, except Sundays. On days of fast only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength may be taken according to each one's need, but together they should not equal another full meal. Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast except on days of complete abstinence. Eating between meals is not permitted but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, a parish priest or confessor should be consulted.

"Qui legit, intelligat"
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the First Sunday of Lent, he focuses on the Gospel from Matthew in which there were two 'spirits' present - the good: the Holy Ghost; the bad - the devil who tempted our Lord in the desert. God knows the evil one has been tempting every one of us during this 40-year time in the desert of deception and destruction of the Church thanks to Vatican II, which Father refers to as the bad spirit - the "spirit of Vatican II" and how we can know them by their fruits. Father emphasizes that we need to realize this and be very, very leery and suspicious of the false prophets who would lead us away from the constituted evangelic traditions and infrangible truths handed down. He cites the Fear of the Lord instilled in that holy doctor Saint Teresa of Avila and if she was worried about fearing hell, then we sure should be. That, as Father illustrates with the Roman Protestant church's total relaxation and abandonment of the necessity for fast, abstinence and penance, has made millions of souls ripe for satan's snares. Father reminds us of St. Peter's words on the virtues and how they can bulk us up with legal spiritual steroids, if you will, to enable us to fend off the beast when he comes calling, tempting. "Vade Satana!" Father explains in his sermon "Now is the day of salvation"
Gabriel's Clarion
Gabriel Garnica extends the celebration of Lourdes with a column on that great virtue of humility which pays the greatest dividends spiritually. He upholds as an ideal role model the humble peasant visionary of Lourdes - the holy young Bernadette whose body remains incorrupt today in Nevers, France. Throughout her life she remained humble and an edification to all that humility bears the greatest fruit. It takes a humble heart to obediently dig in the mud at Our Lady's request; it also takes faith. Bernadette had both and was duly rewarded with Heavenly bliss, though she considered herself a sinner. That, in a nutshell, is the essence of sainthood: sinners striving to be holy. Thanks to her holy humility and obedience millions have been healed by the waters and graces of Lourdes. Gabriel shows the contradictions of a proud world that flies in the face of those striving for humility. Yet humility is the only thing we can bank on for just as Proverbs and Our Lord, as well as St. Peter, have affirmed. To be rich we need Humility: Heaven's Currency
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the second part of his essay on how Lumen Gentium changed everything. Today he shows how the very phrase "subsists in" within that Vatican II document not only separated the signers and those who embraced all the New Order stands for from their former identity with the Church, but also in the same exact breath delegated jurisdiction to authentic clerics who function "outside their confines." It is this latter part which is most crucial for the life of the Church and is, at the same time, least known or understood by Catholics. Part one merely set up the background for that. The people's "picture" of what is going on needs to change and in this second part Griff reveals how we can know that all of our truly faithful and valid Catholic bishops, all of who but one function "outside the confines" of the new Vatican institution, nevertheless truly DO possess the Apostolic mission and the ecclesiastical authority to go forth teaching all the nations and baptizing them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, exactly as the Apostles of old. As for the new Vatican institution, it is rapidly becoming all the more and more merely an ecumenical epidermis that may wither. He explains in Part Two of What is your picture?
Exspectans exspectavimus
Inside The Vatican Staff, headed by editor Robert Moynihan has broken a story that John Paul II has confided he will canonize Pope Pius XII before he dies,"I will not die before I canonize Pope Pius XII." This must come as a shock to most Traditional Catholics who revere Papa Pacelli, but to make him a saint so quickly would not be prudent, especially by the likes of those who have usurped the Sacred Deposit of the Faith which Pius guarded so meticulously even though he realized the enemy had already penetrated within. If this story is true, and we have every reason to believe it is since ITV has been trustworthy in their reports in the past, it shows the enigma that is Karol Wojtyla. On one hand he practically gives the shop away and in another he agitates those very ones he's patronized such as the Jews who, among them, are many anti-Pius XII forces. It also gives credence why Modern Rome would be willing to abandon the stipulation of mandatory miracles to qualify for sainthood since JP2's time is running very short and the only way he can bullheadedly ram through Pius XII's process would be to bypass the necessary third miracle...or fabricate one. Nothing is beyond the deception of newChurch. Not only that, but he could be thinking that after he's gone, without the requirement of a miracle, his own canonization procedure could move along in the fast lane, prompted by the papolators who have already canonized him in their minds. From one who once thought that way, not so fast. Where is the 'Devil's Advocate' when you need him? We have placed this ITV Exclusive within our feature Exspectans exspectavimus for we have long waited with anticipation for Modern Rome to acknowledge Eternal Rome as the God-given sole authority in upholding the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church without compromise. Moynihan files the story Pius XII Now on Fast Track to Become a Saint
Transition to Tradition
On the feast of Saint Scholastica, whose very name represents education, we present a countersyllabus to promoting equality in education today by Bishop Richard Williamson. Written on September 1, 2001, when he was Rector of St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary, it might very well infuriate feminists, but what he writes is truly Traditional Catholic teaching and common sense. Once you read his reasonings you'll have to admit he's right even though what he writes goes against the grain of everything the past generations have been taught. It's about time the tide is turned and women repositioned on the pedestal God intended for them in emulating the Blessed Virgin Mary. His words hold even more weight today when we can see the total corruption on campus thanks to the very fact that the balance of nature has been upturned. Why? He explains in his letter The Unwomaning of Woman
Ash Wednesday
Catholic PewPOINT
Editor Michael Cain offers a glimpse of how so much has disintegrated over the past 40 years and that few actually realize how much has been lost. That is because "they" have sought to erase all memories of the true Faith from the minds and hearts of millions upon millions upon millions, generation after generation. On this day when we are reminded so visibly that we are dust and unto dust we shall return, it is important to realize that we must fight to remember and preserve the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church before we too become victims of the deprogramming experiment wrought by the "principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness: against the spirits of wickedness in high places." It also bears watching considering the concerted effort by the enemies of Jesus to rid America of Christ in the interest of tolerance and diversity. Cain offers three films to realize this fact in his Ash Wednesday Editorial "The Forgotten"
Gabriel's Clarion
Gabriel Garnica reminds us of a devotion forgotten by many, especially on the day assigned by Pope Pius XII for that day was Shrove Tuesday; a day when most have ignored the liturgy and rejected grace in courting satan's sirens by reveling in the bawdy and tawdry carnival atmosphere of Mardi Gras. With every year the confessional lines grow shorter as they party harder and forget the reason for Shrove Tuesday, trying to attribute that day to anything goes in the mode of 'eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you may die.' Yeah, right. You may. Are you prepared? That is the whole purpose of Catholicism, the purpose of Ash Wednesday and Lent, the purpose for Devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus. Papa Pacelli had a reason for placing the historical feast of the Holy Face of Jesus on Shrove Tuesday, but so few realize that. Gabriel wants more souls to come to grips with the fact of how much we need His Sacred Face in a Faceless World
Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
Today we bring you the second part of "A Catholic Pope" by Father James F. Wathen, pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege. On this day of Mardi Gras - Shrove Tuesday - with the emphasis on preparing for Lent by shedding vice, Father Wathen encourages the soul with a celebration of what Catholicism truly is and should always be in application under the guidance of a truly Catholic Pope. In reading through his eleven points of what joy and peace of soul will return when a Catholic Pope once again sits on the Throne of Peter, it is enough to willingly and enthusiastically embrace the sackcloth and ashes of the next 45 days. For though these are dark and terrible times, there is a light at the end of this barren tunnel and Catholicism will have its glorious day in the sun again just as the Son has promised when victory over the revolution will come. It's guaranteed! Father clearly explains in Part Two of his essay sent by Maria Hughes. A Catholic Pope
On the BattleLine
Atila Sinke Guimar„es presents an interesting perspective on why so many Jewish leaders gathered at the end of last month in Rome to pay tribute to John Paul II. Openly they proclaimed what we pointed out last week in how the Jews changed the Catholic Faith. We all know the Catholic Faith cannot be changed. Ergo, what the Jewish leaders influenced was not Catholic, but a hybrid that has posed as 'Catholic' but does not possess the four indelible Marks of the Church. Since only the Catholic Church founded by Christ can and does possess these Marks, and since the church of Vatican II does not have all four Marks, it cannot possibly be the True Church. While John Paul II probably thought the rabbis' praise was all about him, it was really in affirming their superiority over Catholicism and the rejection of Our Lady of the Miracle which resulted in the conversion of one of the most influential Jews and close confidants of the infamous Rothschilds, enablers of Freemasonry. Until Vatican II the Holy See unofficially accepted what the Italians call Madonna del Miracolo and the institution the converted Jew Alphonse Ratisbonne founded - Congregation of Our Lady of Sion. It was specifically established to convert Jews to the True Faith. But with the ecumania of Vatican II all calls for proselytizing the "perfidious Jews" has been halted in the futile effort to please man, not God. Atila points out the "great symbolic outrage to Holy Mother Church" this meeting and Karol Wojtyla's acceptance of the rabbis' authority illustrate. He explains in his latest Bird's Eye View column at his site John Paul II "Blessed" by the Rabbis
Gabriel's Clarion
Gabriel Garnica exposes the ecumenical picture those in the New Order have tried to develop over the past forty years. With the introduction of a new 'Catholic' all-inclusive bible on the market, one wonders how much has been altered in Holy Writ and how they would twist the infrangible truths such as the parable of the Prodigal Son. Ecumaniacs would have you believe that the Prodigal Son came back on his terms and compromised with his father and also that the other son must be rewarded and treated equally so that everyone is happy. Humanism reigns in the kingdom of Ecumania. Gabriel points out the inevitable pitfalls of the erroneous assumptions made by those embracing the new ecumenism's heresies soundly condemned by Pope Pius XI in Mortalium Animos. Gabriel shows how everything is skewered in the mindset of the mad modernists as he explains in his column Two Prodigal Sons

       By worthily hearing the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass thou canst also earn for all faithful Christians saving and salutary graces.
    This is the seventy-fifth of 77 Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur by New York's Archbishop Michael Augustin on June 24, 1818 during the Pontificate of Pope Pius VII.
