“Love is the most powerful means of defense there is. There are no weapons and no power that can measure themselves against love. Everything is defeated before love.”
– Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnika
Christ holding the soul of the Theotokos
Yesterday I suddenly realized the Dormition Fast begins August 1st, tomorrow
! So, as a friendly reminder (to myself as much as anyone else), here are the general fasting guidelines during the Dormition Fast, from August 1st through August 14:
Monday through Friday we abstain from all meat, fish, eggs, dairy, oil and wine.
Saturday & Sunday, oil and wine are permitted.
Fish, oil and wine are also permitted on the Feast of the Holy Transfiguration on August 6.
I shall try to keep the rest of my food postings in accordance with the fasting guidelines. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to use up the rest of my vegan cheese!!
Looking forward to the Blessed Feast.
