There is no obligation to fast. However, voluntary acts of self-denial are recommended.
These are days of Fast and Abstinence from meat. There is a limit of one full meal on these days for all between the ages of 18 and 59 inclusive.
All who have reached their 14th year are bound to abstain totally from meat.
After they have received their First Holy Communion, Catholics are bound by the obligation of receiving Holy Communion at least once a year. This precept should be fulfilled during the Easter Season. Catholics are also bound to confess serious (mortal) sins at least once a year, but this is not limited to the Lenten/ Easter Season.
