EUCHARISTIC FAST RULES

Current Legislation. Under the Code of Canon Law, the fast for Holy Communion is one hour before the reception of the Holy Eucharist. Those who are able to maintain the previous discipline of the three hour fast are still encouraged to do so.

FEAST OF THE CHAIR OF ST PETER

Falls on February 23, 2015. By concession of the Holy See on July 7, 2010, the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter is a First Class feast for the FSSP. On that day, a plenary indulgence is granted for all members of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, and members of the Confraternity of Saint Peter, per the usual conditions.

PLENARY INDULGENCE

On each of the Fridays of Lent, a plenary indulgence is granted to the faithful who, either after participating in the Stations of the Cross or after Communion, recite the “Prayer Before a Crucifix.” Copies of the prayer are in the church vestibule.

The Lenten Discipline consists of three special parts:

  1. Corporal or External Practices
  2. Spiritual or Internal Fast Practices
  3. Spiritual Practices

Listed below are suggested practices that may be used along with your usual Lenten family traditions of sacrifices and penances.

Corporal or External Practices

  • Take less of what you like and more of what you dislike at meals.
  • Take nothing to drink between meals.
  • Avoid listening to the radio at all.
  • Take only one helping of each item at meals.
  • Say an extra Rosary.
  • Avoid any T.V. or videos; instead read the Passion of Christ in your Bible or Missal.
