The Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday after Pentecost Sunday are known as "Whit Embertide". Traditional Catholics still observe fasting and abstinence during the Whit Embertide. These three days are one of the four occasions when Ember Days occur in the Liturgical Year.
Although no longer mandatory after Vatican II, I highly encourage my readers to observe these days. In fact, many Traditional priests encourage the Faithful to observe the days. If you are in good health, please join me by fasting and abstaining from meat these days. These days are special days not only to pray for a good harvest but also pray for priestly vocations and the newly ordained. They are days of prayer, fasting, and charity.
Whit Embertide for this year, 2009 AD: June 3, June 5, and June 6.
