Can I fast on any day?

With your health issues, do not fast without a first talking to your medical professional.


A very good point.

Thank you for the reminder. Summing up all the comments here, I decided to not fast. And yes, I’d indeed not want to upset my fragile health again and again. My foolish mind thought, that perhaps if I take to fasting (for the Lord) I can restore my health. Haha.

How fortunate are those in robust health !! I always think that if I had such a strong frame of body, I’d be fasting without having to worry about so many issues.

I do understand! What helped me was St Pope JPII’s teachings on suffering. I can offer up the sufferings of this body for good.

pretty sure any day is good, EXCEPT Sunday’s and major feast days.
