Orientals (both Orthodox and Catholics) have penitential seasons.

My quick question is, do Easterns have penitential seasons?

I ask because somewhere between "sometimes" and "often," I read Easterns criticize the penitential spirituality of the Latins.

Blessings,
Marduk

P.S. If this is the wrong forum for the question, please move it, dear administrator.

Lent and Advent, of course. That question should probably have been better worded as, "Do Easterns regard Lent and Advent as penitential seasons?"

Blessings

Great Lent is pretty much penitential across the board: West, East, and more East. Advent, on the other hand, isn't really penitential in the same way (on this point, I think I can speak for both traditions, at least in their Orthodox manifestations).

A more useful discussion might center on the question of what "penitential spirituality" is and how it differs in Roman Catholic and Orthodox traditions.

From the particular law of the Pittsburgh Metropolia:
Canon 880 §2
§1. The special penitential seasons are:
1o. The Great Fast
2o. The Peter and Paul Fast
3o. The Dormition Fast [August 1-14]
4o. The Philip Fast [November 15-December 24]

I would also ask when is a Fast not penitential?
