Bolded entries in the liturgical calendars represent holy days of obligation or mandatory penitential observances.   Penitential observances that were in effect in 1962 but are no longer required are indicated in regular font on the traditional calendar.  In the traditional calendar, all days of Lent except Sundays were days of fasting and partial abstinence except when a stricter standard applies.
