Thank you LARobert!
I’m not sure what I should give up this year….March 27, 2009 at 12:59 pm #9241
I am in my 50’s and have always “given” up something for Lent. As a child, I was always allowed to indulge on that which I gave up on Sundays. I thought that was the “Law”. Over the years, I have come to learn that most Catholics have never heard of such a thing. Can someone please clear this controversy up for me?March 27, 2009 at 4:04 pm #9242
Latin Rite Catholics do not Fast and Abstain on Sundays during Lent. Eastern Rite Catholics and Eastern Orthodox do, as they count Sundays in the days of Lent.March 27, 2009 at 4:40 pm #9243
I am Roman Catholic. Do I or do I not abstain on Sundays?March 27, 2009 at 5:14 pm #9244
You would fall under the Latin Rite, as a Roman Catholic. So Sundays are not days that you are required to abstain.

Thank you so much for your quick response. This has been an age old controversary among my other Catholic friends.
