Fasting & Abstinence

Fasting:  On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, Catholics between the ages of 18 - 59 are allowed only one full meal.  Two smaller meals are allowed as needed, but solid foods between meals is not permitted. Those excused from fasting and abstinence include the physically and mentally ill and pregnant or nursing women. 

Abstinence:  Catholics 14 years or older are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and the Fridays of Lent.

Alternatives to fasting from food include fasting from television, social media, complaining, or getting in the last word. Other alternatives to fasting include being cheerful, giving compliments to people, refraining from our favorite foods, or getting up a little earlier than usual for spiritual reading or prayer.
