LENTEN FAST AND ABSTINENCE
CATHOLICS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18 AND 59 ARE OBLIGED TO FAST ON ASH WEDNESDAY AND GOOD FRIDAY. IN ADDITION, ALL CATHOLICS 14 YEARS OLD AND OLDER MUST ABSTAIN FROM MEAT ON ASH WEDNESDAY, GOOD FRIDAY AND ALL FRIDAYS OF LENT.
FASTING HAS TO DO WITH THE AMOUNT OF FOOD EATEN, WHICH MEANS PARTAKING OF ONLY ONE FULL MEAL. THE OTHER TWO MEALS OF THE DAY (BREAKFAST AND LUNCH) SHOULD BE LESS THAN WHAT IS EATEN AT THE MAIN MEAL. ABSTINENCE HAS TO DO WITH NOT EATING MEAT.
THE OBLIGATION TO DO PENANCE IS A SERIOUS ONE; THE OBLIGATION TO OBSERVE, AS A WHOLE OR SUBSTANTIALLY, THE DAYS OF PENANCE IS ALSO SERIOUS. HOWEVER, NO ONE SHOULD BE SCRUPULOUS IN THIS REGARD; FAILURE TO OBSERVE INDIVIDUAL DAYS OF PENANCE IS NOT CONSIDERED SERIOUS. SOME ARE EXCUSED FROM FASTING AND/OR ABSTINENCE BEC AUSE OF SICKNESS, AGE, OR OTHER REASONS.
WE ARE REMINDED OF OTHER WORKS OF PENANCE DURING LENT: PRAYER, SELF-DENIAL, ALMSGIVING AND WORKS OF PERSONAL CHARITY. ATTENDING MASS DAILY OR SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK, PRAYING THE ROSARY, MAKING THE WAY OF THE CROSS, VISITING THE SICK AND SHUT-INS CAN BE EVEN MORE MEANINGFUL AND DEMANDING THAN SIMPLY ABSTAINING FROM MEAT ON FRIDAY.
