Lenten Fast & Abstinence
During the Holy Season of Lent, the church urges her children to reflect a spirit of penance through the disciplines of fasting and abstinence from flesh of animals.
Regarding fasting: Only one full meal is to be taken, with two smaller meals may be taken, nor is there to be eating between meals. Fasting obliges all Catholics from the age of 18-59. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting.
All those over the age of 14 until death are obliged to refrain from eating flesh of animals (meat) on all Fridays in Lent.
Solemnity of St. Patrick, Friday March 17th
In the Archdiocese of New York, Saint Patrick is our patron saint. His feast day is always a solemnity, as a Sunday. Therefore this year, St. Patrick's Day falls on a Friday. Cardinal Dolan has relaxed the law of fasting and abstinence for that day. Enjoy your corned beef.
