Season of Lent Regulations for Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast and abstinence. Fasting means (1 full meal and 2 smaller ones). Anyone between 18 & 59 are obliged to fast.  Anyone with a medical condition in which fasting may be harmful is NOT obliged to fast but may do some act of kindness or work of charity instead. Abstinence means (not eating meat.) This regulation begins at the age of 14.  The Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence.  — Diocese of Pittsburgh 2014
