    Abstinence:

    Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesdays, Good Friday and all Fridays in Lent. Fasting:

    Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday, in addition to abstaining from meat, should fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On those days they should eat only one full meal. Smaller quantities of food may be taken at two other meals, but no food should be consumed at other time during those two days. The obligation of fasting ceases with the celebration of one’s 59th birthday. Prayer:

    We are encouraged to devote more time to prayer and scripture reading during Lent. The Sacrament of Reconciliation prepares our hearts to fully join in celebrating Christ’s resurrection.
