Ash Wednesday (February 14th)     and Good Friday (March 29th)      are days of universal fast, observed by all who are 18 to 58 years of age, inclusive, permitting one full meal and two much lighter meals, with nothing to eat in between meals other than water, milk, and juices.  In addition, both of these holy days are days of full     abstinence from meat (unless excused for  reasons of health) as are all Fridays of Lent — binding all who are 14 years of age and older.
