Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.
Fasting is to be observed by those who are 18 years of age until age 59.
When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal.
Two smaller meals may be taken but not to equal a full meal.
Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence from meat and should be observed by those who are 14 years of age onwards.
If possible the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate the Resurrection. During Lent the Church asks us to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms.
