Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of universal fast and abstinence (from meat) for those between the ages of 14 and 59.

Fasting allows a person to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may be taken, not to equal one full meal.

If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) 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 more readily his Resurrection.

In addition, all Catholics 14 years and older must abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent.
