I’m Ukrainian Greek Catholic. Our liturgical day goes from Vespers to Ninth Hour the next day (c.f. the account of Creation in Genesis) vs midnight to midnight in the Latin Church.
My problem is determining when I should cease servile work and rest on the Holy Days. I usually work until 6 pm (sometimes even later) and do household chores on arriving home. My job isn’t a problem; it’s doing chores around the house that unnerves me.
The same applies to the obligation of fast & abstinence. Do I go from midnight to midnight or go by the liturgical day?
I’d really appreciate if the priests & deacons would weigh in on this. Thank you in advance!
