What are we allowed to eat at Feast times that fall on Fasting times.I was reading that fish is allowed on these occasions. Is it the same during Lent?Yesterday was The Feast for Entering the Temple. When Christ was first presented in the Temple as a baby Could we have eaten fish yesterday??
Gosh! I have started the Lent Fast too early! I thought Lent had started already ?? I guess I needed that!Anyway, thanks for your 'concern'!
You know you are right minatasgeel! It has been a blessing! "A blessing in disguise" as the saying goes! Now I feel more worthy to participate in Great Lent!Thanks and Praises to our Merciful God!!!

Lent is one of those ways.
I'm still wondering about celebrating Feast times during Fasting times though.I read about how some celebrate the Feast days of their patron Saints all year. How is this done? Is it a Feast of Fasting foods? Or maybe they prepare non-fasting food and give it to the sick?Does anyone know people who celebrate their patron saints faithfully every month?
Excuse me, my question is being misunderstood. I'll try again.I have read about orthodox christians who keep the feasts celebrating, commemorating, their patron saints on the corresponding day faithfully. I was just wondering how they celebrate those feast days during FASTING days?
