Believers were reminded of the food calendar by day for Petrov Lent 2023


On Monday, July 1, Orthodox believers enter the post, which is called Apostolic or Petrov.

Its start date, as well as its duration, is different every year – from 8 to 42 days, but the end is always on July 11, on the eve of the Day of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul – hence the name.

Restrictions on food are not enough to keep the fast. Fasting is primarily a spiritual cleansing, and here it is much more important to give up entertainment and entertainment.

It is believed that churched people should reduce to a minimum, and on the days of strict fasting, even refuse to watch TV and use the Internet.

The use of alcohol during fasting is strictly unacceptable. Fasting people do not appoint weddings and celebrations for this period.

Quarrels, disputes, manifestations of negativity should not be allowed. Even any borrowing of money is postponed for later.

During the period of Peter’s fast, it is necessary to spend as much time as possible alone with yourself and read prayers, repent and show compassion for others.

All this, together with voluntary abstinence from animal food, helps to improve, purify thoughts, soul and body.
