The Feasts, Fasts, Devotions of the Ecclesiastical Year.
The Church, being empowered by Christ to regulate Divine worship, has established Christian feasts. They afford us an opportunity of paying our homage to God Almighty. Religious fasts are appointed by the Church to help us to control the passions of our corrupt nature, by reason and religion. They also serve to satisfy God’s justice on account of our past sins.
