Days of Penance PDF Print E-mail

The Conference of Bishops of Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei on February 25th 1984 issued the following norms regarding Days of Penance in this region:

  1. The law of God requires all Christians to do penance.
  2. Abstinence only.
    • All Fridays throughout the year, unless they are solemnities (big feasts), are days of penance and consequently, all Christians are obliged to abstain from meat.
    • All Christians from the age of 14 and above are bound by the law of abstinence.

FAST AND ABSTINENCE

All Christians from the age of 18 to the beginning of 60 are bound by the law of fasting and abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

Those who are unable to observe fasting and abstinence may do penance in one of the following or similar ways instead.

As examples:

  • Going to the Holy Mass, praying the rosary, praying the Stations of the Cross, visiting the Blessed Sacrament, doing works of mercy, such as giving money to the poor, visiting the sick, praying for the dead, depriving themselves of some enjoyable food, abstaining from alcoholic drinks, giving up a show on TV or Video and many other ways of mortification.

 

Eating meat on Friday would not be a sin if an alternative penance as suggested above is performed.
