On the Twelfth Day of Christmas WE FAST!

You cannot have Feast without Fast. We have been celebrating for nearly two weeks since the Birth of Christ. Today the Church calls us to Fast in preparation for the Feast of Theophany. Normally, January 5th is a strict fast, but today is Sunday, so oil and wine is allowed. If you have never fasted for the Feast of Theophany, I invite you to spend the rest of today fasting as strictly as you are able, but AT LEAST from meat as an offering to God.
