*Lenten Regulations of The Catholic Church
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.
In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.
The norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59.
When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.
The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Catholic Church from age 14 onward.
Those who are sincerely unable — due to health or work reasons—to fulfill these regulations, should discuss with their pastors or confessors other suitable penitential practices, rather than to simply exempt themselves from observance.
