Each Catholic is asked to preserve the penitential purpose and character of Lent. Therefore:
Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and each Friday of Lent.
Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday, in addition to abstaining from meat, should fast, that is eat only one full meal on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Smaller quantities of food may be taken at two other meals, but no food should be consumed at other times during those two days. The obligation of fasting ceases with the celebration of one’s 59th birthday.
These practices are designed for spiritual growth. Catholics are not to excuse themselves lightly from these prescribed minimal penitential practices.
Ash Wednesday, February 26 to Palm Sunday, April 5
Consider walking for 40 Days for Life as a Lenten journey. This "desert" experience of walking, fasting, and prayer gives public witness to the value of every person's life as we walk peacefully in the public right-of-way outside Planned Parenthood, 2605 S. Oneida Street. More information and sign-up in the narthex.
