  • What is the difference between them? Aren't they the same?

  • Simply:
    Fast = no meat
    Partial Fast = meat once per day
    For a small gain they travel far; for eternal life many will scarcely lift a foot from the ground. - Thomas A Kempis

    Fast=One full meal per day with two other "collations" (snack) not to make up another meal when put together.  Partial fast=?? Some modification of a fast by dispensation.
    Abstinence= no meat. Partial abstinence= meat at one meal only.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.
