The law of abstinence requires a Catholic 14 years of age until death to abstain from eating meat on Fridays in honor of the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday. Meat is considered to be the flesh and organs of mammals and fowl. Moral theologians have traditionally considered this also to forbid soups or gravies made from them. Salt and freshwater species of fish, amphibians, reptiles and shellfish are permitted, as are animal-derived products such as gelatin, butter, cheese and eggs, which do not have any meat taste.
Great spiritual evil needs be confronted with The Divine.
The easy thing is often the right thing. The difficulty is not in the food, but in the commitment to setting a goal that's related to a base passion (food) and then keeping our commitment to it through the long haul while we maintain our peace, kindness, gentleness, etc even when we're hangry. Fasting forces us to prioritize to essentials and to recognize our complete reliance on God, turning to Him in prayer, almsgiving, and service.
