By Jim Auer
Abstinence during Lent is required at age fourteen and fasting at age eighteen. This pamphlet for teens addresses the full meaning of fasting, how it affects teens, what is required at what age, how fasting is one of the three forms of penance (and what the other two are), and how to have a meaningful fast at Lent and at other times. Also discusses the topic of eating disorders and how fasting is unrelated to anorexia.
