LENT MEANS SPRING TIME:
Lent is a preparation for the ascent to the holy mountain of Easter. Through its twofold theme of repentance and baptism, the season of Lent disposes both the catechumens and the faithful to celebrate the paschal mystery.
FASTING AND ABSTINENCE:
All Catholics 14 years and older should abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. All Catholics between ages 18 and 59, should fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
To fast means to eat only one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken for good health but together they should not equal a full meal. Eating between meals is not recommended; however, liquids including coffee, milk and fruit juices are allowed.
