Lenten regulations regarding fast and abstinence 
(and, yes, since Valentine's Day falls on Ash Wednesday this year, it is a day of fast and abstinence):
In the Diocese of Baton Rouge, as in the rest of the Church in the United States, Catholics aged 18 through 59 are bound by a grave obligation to observe a solemn fast on both Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Catholics aged 14 and up are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday as well.
These norms have been established by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops in accord with the norms of canons 1249-1253 in the revised Code of Canon Law of 1983.  To fast means to consume only one full meal a day at most, although taking of other, smaller quantities of food at the other customary mealtimes is permitted. Food and drink "between meals" (excepting only
water and medicine) is not permitted on fast days.
To abstain from meat means refraining from eating beef, veal, pork, or poultry at least, although not necessarily eggs, milk products, or meat broths or condiments made from animal fat. The consumption
of fish, shellfish, and reptiles (e.g., turtle, alligator) is permitted if desired.

STATION OF THE CROSS BEGINS ON FRIDAY, FEB. 16th -
