How should fast during lent Petrova pregnant and lactating women, says the rector of the Church of Alexander Nevsky at MGIMO Igor FOMIN:
There are different spiritual practices of lent, I will tell you about one that has developed in the parish of our Church in the name of Alexander Nevsky at MGIMO. Pregnant and nursing women are exempt from the gastronomic posts, but they are exempt from fasting spiritual.

Answers Archpriest Igor FOMIN, rector of the Church of the Holy Prince Alexander Nevsky at MGIMO:
Each person needs to determine their degree of fasting. One may suffer a post in full, and he will be good. Another, on the contrary, should reduce post.
To fast are not as exact as written in the Statute, can ailing persons. Disease — the same kind of post, the humility of the flesh. In addition, in some diseases gastronomy post can bring to your health harm. Listen to yourself, ask the advice of a doctor.
Has its own measure of fasting in pregnant women; military personnel; those who work in the hectic or studying.
Of course, the special theme for kids post. Sometimes it is better to negotiate with the kids about what lent they will eat less candy than to impose restrictions on them in the dairy and meat food. In any case, with all the doubts and questions about fasting I suggest you to come to his spiritual father or priest you trust.
The most important thing "is not there in the post", is their neighbors. I'm talking about anger, irritation, quarrels and any other negative actions that destroy peace among men. In fact, with others in doing wrong, we are destroying the bridge between us and God.As confession and communion during lent?
Says the rector of the Church of Alexander Nevsky at MGIMO Igor FOMIN:
Each of us must decide for itself the question of how often confession and communion in the post. It to be to the needs and forces. Because the Sacrament of Holy Communion, when we receive Christ into his soul as the dearest guest, requires not just desire but effort. This prayer, repentance, correcting himself. That's why confession in the days of fasting should be as serious and sincere as in the great Christian festivals.
If you have doubts about the question of how often you should take communion, ask advice from a priest who knows you and whom you trust.Summer post
