In the Philippines, fasting and abstinence remain obligatory for Roman Catholics on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The law of fasting prescribes that only one full meal a day is taken. Two lighter meals are permitted to maintain strength according to each one’s needs. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices, are allowed.
In an interview with Mike Enriquez of GMA News TV yesterday morning, Father Aris Sison of the Saint John Paul the II Parish in Quezon City said fasting may not necessarily all about food. Sison read from his smartphone Pope Francis’s words on fasting.
