Fasting for those 18-59 years of age is
required on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. You
may wish to fast every day during Lent, except
Sundays. Fasting calls for not eating between meals
and having two smaller meals, which together do not
exceed the quantity of food in your one full meal.
Fasting has long been used as a means of purification
of the body, leading to purification of the soul. Abstinence from meat--that is, eating no
meat—is required on Ash Wednesday and the Fridays
of Lent. One should not be scrupulous about this; but
if one totally disregarded this regulation, it could be a
serious sin of disobedience. The law applies to every
Catholic 14 years of age and older. This penitential
action brings our focus to Fridays, the day Jesus died.
