Rules of Fasting and Abstinence

 

1)      Abstinence:

No meat is eaten on days of abstinence.

Days of Abstinence are every Friday in Lent, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

Everyone 14 and older are bound to abstain from meat on days of abstinence (invalids, pregnant and nursing mothers are exempt).

 

2)  Fasting:

Fasting means having only one full meal to maintain one's strength. Two smaller meatless and penitential meals are permitted according to one's needs, but they should not equal the one full meal. Eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.

Days of fasting are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

Everyone from 18 but not yet 60 years of age are bound to the law of fasting (again, invalids, pregnant and nursing mothers are exempt).

Days of fasting are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

The law of abstinence forbids the use of meat, but not of eggs, the products of milk or condiments made of animal fat.

The law of fasting allows only one full meal a day, but does not prohibit taking some food in the morning and evening, observing—as far as quantity and quality are concerned—approved local custom.

To the law of abstinence those are bound who have completed their 14th year of age. To the law of fast those of the faithful are bound who have completed their 18th year and up until the beginning of their 60th year (invalids, pregnant and nursing mothers are exempt). © Evangelization Station, 2010
