The Church’s Laws for Fast and Abstinence on Ember Days
Abstinence on Ember days
Everyone over seven years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence.
Complete abstinence is to be observed as usual on Friday.
Partial abstinence is observed on Ember Wednesday and Saturday. On these days, meat and soup or gravy made from meat, may be taken only once a day at the principal meal.
Fast on Ember Days
Ember Wednesday, Friday and Saturday are fast days.
Everyone over 21 years and under 59 years of age is also bound to observe the law of fast.
On days of fast, only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one’s needs; but together they should not equal another full meal.
Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast, except Friday. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk or fruit juices, are allowed.
Where health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, a parish priest or confessor should be consulted.
