Reminders about fasting and abstinence during Lent – Courtesy St. Frances Cabrini

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of Fasting as well as abstinence in the Universal Church.
This means anyone 14 years and older (without a maximum age cut off) is to abstain from meat on these two days.

It also means anyone 18 years to 59 years old is to fast from extra meals. This means eating only one main meal on these two days, or, ensuring that any other food that is taken during the day does not amount to more food than one would eat at only one, main meal.

All Fridays of Lent that are not Solemnities are days of abstaining from meat for those 14 years and older.

As Catholics we understand these are more than recommendationsor encouragements. These are theological norms pertaining to the substance and discipline of our faith. No one is to excuse themselves from these norms lightly.
