Is abstaining from meat consumption no longer a Friday requirement? My parents used to abstain every Friday of the year, pre-Vatican II. I didn't see it in your list and am just curious. Thanks in advance, Salvation!
With the old rules it is best to stay, Vatican ll, took that rule away."To give up your meat,just one Friday a week", is in honor of Jesus, would died on that day. Graces abound! Eat Fish on Fridays or other meatless items.
Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent are days of Fast and Abstinence as referenced by the Canon Law post above.
Most Catholics still voluntarily observe the Fast and Abstinence on ALL Fridays of the year.
