No Fasting on National Day Of Prayer And Fasting!

Every month The Good Counsel Network calls a National Day of Prayer and Fasting for Life. We are now into the third year of these days when we ask Catholics to;

Join us each month in Prayer and Fasting:
Fast from all food except bread and water for the day
Fast from a particular food or luxury, e.g. chocolate, alcohol, cigarettes, TV.
Fast from whatever you can given your state of health etc, but make sure it is something that involves a sacrifice to yourself.
We are asking people to say a Rosary (or an extra Rosary if you say it daily already).
You could also offer an extra effort such as going to Mass (or an extra Mass) on the day, or going to Adoration. You can even pray before a closed tabernacle if Adoration is not available near you.

However as the next such Day is Wednesday 27th April, which as it is in Easter Week it would be wrong to ask for a full Fast, but as it is the 43rd anniversary of the Abortion Act coming into force in England and Wales, we felt that it would be wrong to move the Day. We are therefore asking people to Feast on this months Fast Day, but to say some extra prayers and give up television, music, moblie phone or something else on this Day.
