I mentioned this on the “Fasting on Good Friday” thread in this category and while there was one response (thank you), I’m hoping for a more definitive answer.
There’s a very minor disagreement in my household about the use of chewing gum on Good Friday. In my opinion, no, but others in the household say it’s not a problem. The person in question, to my knowledge, otherwise only had one full meal. (I don’t know how long the gum was in the mouth, but I believe it was there at least some time between the hours of noon and 3 (and afterward).
Trying not to judge but it would be nice to know if there is a rule.
Thanks in advance for the guidance. God bless.
