Mar. 16, 2019: Ember Saturday (Fasting and Partial Abstinence to be observed.)
Hi John, no it does not. Ember Days are days favored for priestly ordinations, prayer for priests, first Communions, almsgiving and other penitential and charitable acts, and prayers for the souls in Purgatory.
Does the fasting and complete abstinence of this day, Ember day, add anything special to the normal fasting on Friday's during Lent?
