I’m planning on fasting today (Good Friday) for the first time ever, and I need to make sure that my understanding of how to do so is correct. Any thoughts you might have are welcome.
My understanding is that, while fasting, one may partake of a full meal – that is, even a “sumptuous” (newadvent.org) feast – once during a fast, and preferably as close to noon as possible. I also understand that one may also partake of a “collation” a couple of times – which I take to mean a small snack, say for breakfast and at normal supper time.
Am I more or less correct?
