is a day of
FAST and ABSTINENCE
What does that mean?
On Ash Wednesday, Catholics over 14 years of age are expected to abstain from eating meat on this day.
Catholics 18 years of age and up to the beginning of their 60th year are expected to fast on these days: taking only one full meal and two other light meals, eating nothing between meals. (Liquids between meals, however, are allowed.)
For more information on fasting and abstinence, see this earlier post.
