The US Bishops prescribe, as minimal obligation, that all persons who are fourteen years of age and older are bound to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent (with the exception of March 25th the Solemnity of the Annunciation). Further, all persons eighteen years of age and older, up to and including their fifty-ninth birthday, are bound to fast by limiting themselves to a single meal on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, while the other two meals on those days are to be light. All the faithful are encouraged, when possible, to attend Mass and receive Holy Eucharist daily, to celebrate frequently the Sacrament of Penance, to undertake spiritual reading, especially the study of Sacred Scripture, and to participate in parish Lenten devotions, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is especially recommended.
