Fridays in Lent- Days of Abstinence

On days of abstinence, meat may not be eaten at all. This also includes items made from meat, like gravies and soups. Catholics 14 years of age or older are bound to abstinence on Fridays in Lent, and on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  REMEMBER:  THERE IS NO UPPER AGE LIMIT ON ABSTINENCE.  You are not excused from abstaining from meat if you have reached a certain age.  However, those who have health issues which prevent them from abstaining from meat on these days should seek other forms of penance.


ASH WEDNESDAY AND GOOD FRIDAY ARE DAYS OF ABSTINENCE AND FASTING.  Fasting and abstinence are not the same.  Fasting is different than abstinence.  Fasting means one full meal, two light meals, with no eating in between meals. 
Catholics from 18 to 59 are bound to the obligation of fasting.    Those who have health issues may find other means of penance if fasting is impossible.
