LENTEN FAST AND ABSTINENCE - Good Friday

Matthew 6:17, Matthew 9:14-15, Mark 2:20, Matthew 4:2, Matthew 17: 17-20, Acts 13:3 & 14:23,

Abstinence: The law of abstinence obliges all those who are over the age of 14.  On days of abstinence meat is not eaten at any meal.  The days of abstinence are Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent, including Good Friday.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.

Fasting: Those between the ages of 18 and 59 years old are obliged to observe the laws on fasting.  Traditionally, to fast means limiting oneself to one full meal in the day and two smaller meals. The two prescribed days of fasting are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
