The first day of Lent, the time of reflection & penitence leading up to Easter Sunday.
...An opportunity to be reconciled
with God and neighbor.
Form prayerful habits and the discipline
to be able to “find God in all things”.
Lenten devotion to call to mind
the Passion of Christ
Abstinence is a form of prayer,
Contemplate the agony Jesus endured for us.

The norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
