I have a question,  I heard that you only have to not eat meat on ash wednesday and good friday during lent.  I also heard that you can eat meat on all the other fridays in lent.  Is that right?

During lent they don't eat meat on Fridays. Well technically that's not true because they can eat fish those days.

I grew up Catholic but I am not anymore.

Most Catholics don't eat meat on any Friday during lent....as well as Ash Wednesday.

Traditionally....meat was never eaten on Fridays -- though that has changed to only Fridays during lent over the years.

Not the churches my brother, father, aunts/uncles/cousins, attend because they are all very strict, practicing Catholics and they all continue to not eat meat on ALL Fridays during lent.

 I grew up Catholic until I was 12, so I cannot remember. But, we always had fish or fish sticks on Fridays.

Born into a Catholic home and Ash Wendseday thru Good Friday and all Fridays during lent....We ate fish to symbolize the fish Jesus fed the crowds...

The elderly and young are expempt if they have a special dietary reason...

The new Catholic Church rules I do not follow, I do as I was taught back in the day...
