NO Fasting on Sundays, quora

Since Sunday is a feast day, can Catholics break their Lenten fast on Sundays?

The beginning of Lent is calculated for 40 days of fasting to exclude Sundays.

Catholics at least Latin rite exclude Sundays, have six weeks of six fast days after four extra days starting with Ash Wednesday. Orthodox have 8 weeks of 5 fast days, as they also exclude Saturdays.

Fasting on Sundays is a heretical practise of the Arians! It is an offense.
