Fast and Abstinence
Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Fasting means partaking of only one full meal. The other meals on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday should be smaller meals. Fasting is a sign of self denial and is encouraged for all during Lent. Catholics who are 14 years of age and older must abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent (including Good Friday). Abstinence means that no meat is eaten on those days.
