Good Friday — April 14, 2017, is a day of Fast and Abstinence
Fridays of Lent — are days of Abstinence.
Fast: All adults are bound by the Law of Fast up to the beginning of their 60th year. (Canon 1252) “A person who has completed their 18th year of age is an adult.” (Canon 97, p. 1)
On days of Fast, one full meal is allowed. Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted; but liquids, including milk and fruit juices, are allowed.
Abstinence: “All persons who have completed their 14th year are bound by the Law of Abstinence.” (Canon 1252) On days of Abstinence, no meat is allowed.
Note – When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. When in doubt concerning Fast or Abstinence, a parish priest or confessor should be consulted.
Minors – “Pastors and parents are to see to it that minors who are not bound by the Laws of Fast and Abstinence are educated in an authentic sense of Penance.” (Canon 1242)
