It’s Friday today – means no MEAT day. It is abstinence rules for a Catholic to abstain from eating meat on Friday.
Every person 14 years of age or older must abstain from meat (and items made with meat) on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent. Every person between the age of 18 and 59 (beginning of 60th year) must fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
But remember again, that in Catholic it’s not just about FOOD. The most important in Lent is to demonstrate love and fogiveness.
Abstaining from meat is my choice – to spritually get close to the Lord. To remember that on Friday ,Jesus sacrified his flesh and his blood to save us.
