Nativity Fast
(November 15 - December 24)

The Nativity Fast is divided into two periods. The first period is November 15 through December 19 when the traditional fasting discipline (no meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, fish, wine and oil) is observed with katalysis for wine and oil on Tuesday and Thursday, and for fish, wine and oil on Saturday and Sunday. The second period is December 20 through 24 when the traditional fasting discipline (no meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, fish, wine and oil) is observed Monday through Friday, but with katalysis for wine and oil on Saturday and Sunday. [Katalysis is Greek, meaning “relaxation”.]

Feast, Saints, and A Thought for the Day


Katherine the Great Martyr (November 25)

Let us extol the all-lauded bride of Christ, Katherine, the guardian of Sinai, who is our help and our support; for by the power of the Spirit she silenced brilliantly the nobility of liars. And now that she hath been crowned as a Martyr, she seeketh for all the Great Mercy. (Apolytikion in Tone 5)

Saints of the Day

Clement, pope of Rome; Hieromartyrs Peter, archbishop of Alexandria, and Hermogenes, bishop of Agrigentum; Martyrs Philomenos and Alexander of Corinth

 
Thought for the Day

"It is meet and right to hymn Thee, to bless Thee, to praise Thee, to give thanks unto Thee and to worship Thee in every place of Thy dominion; for Thou art God ineffable, inconceivable, invisible, incomprehensible, ever-existing and eternally the same, Thou and Thine only-begotten Son and Thy Holy Spirit." -- from the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
