Belief and Practice: Orthodox Fasting

Eastern Orthodox Christians have a different calendar than Western Christians and for them, Great Lent, as they call it, has just begun. That means specific dietary prohibitions almost every day and, occasionally, a total fast. Our guide to the Great Lent fast is Jack Hinton of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Washington, DC.
