Is it true that you're not supposed to fast or abstain on Sundays? I always have done so during Lent, but I've heard that Sundays are exempt.
Every Sunday is a feast day, a celebration of the Resurrection, a mini-Easter. As such, a penitential mind-set is discouraged.
That doesn't mean you must engage in something you are otherwise abstaining from, nor that you should make it an occasion of gluttony. But, in general, Sundays are not days for fasting and the like.
Very good answer. Thanks SD!
