Ash Wednesday and Good Friday  are obligatory days of universal  fast and abstinence. All  Fridays of Lent are obligatory  days of abstinence. Fasting is required for all who have  completed their 18th year and have not yet reached their 60th year.

Fasting allows a person to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may be taken, not to equal one full meal. Abstinence (from meat) is obligatory for all who have reached their 14th year.

The Church encourages the faithful to keep the “Paschal Fast” on Good Friday and Holy Saturday in anticipation of the Easter Vigil.
