Ash Wednesday fasting | Ash Wednesday fasting rules

What is the rules for Ash Wednesday fasting? Ash Wednesday is the first day of lent and some of us didn’t really know the rules of fasting during Ash Wednesday. Fasting rules are simple, you just eat one full meal, and it must not include meat. Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. In addition, all Catholics 14 years old and older must abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent.

Abstinence forbids the use of meat, but not of eggs, milk products or condiments made of animal fat.

Abstinence does not include meat juices and liquid foods made from meat. Thus, such foods as chicken broth, consomme, soups cooked or flavored with meat, meat gravies or sauces, as well as seasonings or condiments made from animal fat are not forbidden. So it is permissible to use margarine and lard. Even bacon drippings which contain little bits of meat may be poured over lettuce as seasoning.' - From americancatholic.org
