... a day to abstain from eating meat. What does that mean?
Catholics over 14 years of age are expected to abstain from eating meat on the Fridays of Lent.
If this seems to be asking too much, check out the story in this earlier post...
Note: Individual, personal health concerns and "doctor's orders" always take precedence over regulations for fast and abstinence!
Fast and Abstinence In Lent
All Christians are called to special prayer, fasting and caring for the poor in the season of Lent.
Each person determines how he or she will personally live out these ancient Lenten exercises.
In addition to personal Lenten practices, Catholics are also called to a communal practice of self-denial through fasting and abstinence.
