Moveable Feasts.

EASTER - MONDAY, ASCENSION - DAY WHITSUN-MONDAY, and CORPUS CHRISTI

DAY.

N.B. Easter-Tuesday and Whitsun-Tuesday are days of Devotion.

Fasting Days.

1. The forty Days of Lent. 2. The Ember-Days, being the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of the first Week in Lent; of Whitsun-Week; of the third

Week in September; and of the third Week in Advent. 3. The Wednesdays and Fridays of the four Weeks in Advent. 4. The Vigils or Eves of Whitsuntide; of the Feast of SS. Peter and Paul; of the Assumption of the B. V. M.; of All Saints; and of Christmas day.

N. B. When any fasting-day falls upon a Sunday, it is to be observed on the Saturday be fore.

Days of Abstinence.

1. The Sundays in Lent. 2. The Fridays out of Lent; but should Christmas-day fall upon a Friday, it is not a day of abstinence.

N. B. The Catholic Church commands all her children upon Sundays and Holidays to be present at the great Eucharistic Sacrifice, which we call the Mass, and to rest from servile work on these days, and to keep them holy. 2dly, She commands them to abstain from flesh, on all days of fasting and abstinence; and on fasting days to eat but one meal. 3dly, She commands them to confess their sins to their pastor at least once a year. 4thly, She commands them to receive the blessed sacrament at least once a year, and that at Easter, viz. between Palm-Sunday and Low-Sunday, as may be seen from the following Extract.

The 4th Council of Lateran, Can. 21, ordains, "That every one of the faithful of both sexes, "after they come to the years of discretion, shall "in private faithfully confess all their sins, at "least once a year, to their own pastor; and "take care to fulfil, to the best of their power, "the penance enjoined them; receiving reve"rently, at least at Easter, the Sacrament of the "Eucharist, unless, perhaps, by the counsel of "their pastor, for some reasonable cause, they "judge it proper to abstain from it for a time; "otherwise, let them be excluded out of the "Church, whilst living, and when they die, be "deprived of Christian burial."
