Christmas Eve Fast

"Adoration of the Shepherds", by El Greco

For those of you inclined to keep pre-1965 customs of the Church; until the mid 1960s, Dec 23 and Dec 24 were days of fast and abstinence.   In my opinion, a fitting end to a penitential Advent.

Lift up your heads, for your redemption is at hand.
