Ash Wednesday is an obligatory day of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.

The norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59.

When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.

The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.

 

In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.
