    ASH WEDNESDAY

    March 1, 2017

    A Universal day of Fast and Abstinence

    FASTING AND ABSTINENCE

    Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from meat but Catholics may substitute special acts of charity or piety (prayer) on those days. The law of abstinence from meat binds those who are 14 and older; the law of fasting binds those from 18-59 years of age. Parents and educators are reminded of their duty to introduce children gradually to the understanding and practice of penance. Adult example will be the greatest influence in this matter. Fasting means one regular meal and two smaller than normal meals and no snacking.
