In our fast for Lent, we are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all Friday’s during Lent. The proper fast on Ash Wednesday is one full meal. The one rule that must be followed is to forgive others and demonstrate agape love. The essence of agape love is compassion, goodwill, and benevolence.
