I am with a secular Carmelite order and there are several feast days per year which are preceded by a fast. December 14th being the feast of St. John of the Cross, that means today is such a fast day.
Regardless of whether it comes on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday or within the schedule of any secular order, does drinking coffee with cream break the fast?
I typically have coffee when I first wake up and I have it with cream. I eat breakfast later. Should I be skipping the cream and/or the coffee?
If you don’t get to this until after December 13th, I would still like to know the answer to the question. Thanks!
