Lady Fast,

Resource Toolbox

a species of penance, voluntary or enjoined, in which the penitent had the choice of fasting once a week for seven years on that day of the week on which Lady Day (q.v.) happened to fall, beginning his course from that day, or, of finishing his penance sooner by taking as many fasting-days together as would fall to his lot in one year.
