Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting* and abstinence* for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are abligatory days of abstinence. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.

*Fasting: The practice of limiting the intake of food and water so as to imitate the suffering Christ during His passion and throughout His earthly life. The Church requires fasting (i.e., two small meals and one larger meal, with no eating between meals, and abstinence from meat) on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. All Christians are called to fast and to consider Jesus, Mary, and the saints as examples of mortification.

*Abstinence: Depriving oneself of meat or of foods prepared with meat. The discipline binds those fourteen years of age and above.
