Lenten Fast

I wish my fellow Orthodox readers a blessed Clean Monday and a beneficial Lent!

Father Edward Hughes—a priest of the Antiochene Patriarchate rather than the well known Latin exorcist by the same name—has an informative essay on the history of fasting and abstinence in the East and West: “Fasting and Abstinence: Similarities and Differences in Development between the Byzantine East and West and some Pastoral Considerations.” As Clean Week begins, you may wish to know the development behind our practice.
