Fasting and Abstinence
Abstinence from Meat
All Catholics 14 years and older must abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent, Ash Wednesday, and Good Friday. The law of abstinence prohibits eating the flesh, marrow, and blood products of such animals and birds as constitute flesh meat. In earlier times, the law of abstinence also forbade such foods that originated from such animals, such as milk, butter, cheese, eggs, lard, and sauces made from animal fat. This restriction is no longer in force in the Roman rite. Vegetables as well as fish and similar cold-blooded animals (frogs, clams, turtles, etc.) may be eaten. Amphibians are relegated to the category to which they bear most striking resemblance.
All Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59, are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The Church's current law of fasting permits only one full meal per day, and two lighter meals that together equal less than a full meal. While the consumption of solid food between meals is forbidden, liquids, including tea, coffee and juices, may be taken at any time.
The Eucharistic fast is for one hour before reception of Holy Communion and allows the taking of water and medicine only.
St. Mary Catholic Cathedral is a historic downtown parish and the seat of the Diocese of Colorado Springs. We comprise a diverse community of believers committed to serve and welcome all people. We stand for unity in our diversity by expressing our love of God through prayer, worship, and outreach. The Cathedral offers the faithful a rich sacramental life and is a refuge for all who seek solace, peace, and renewal.
