Good Friday? I need help!
#2
The traditional rules are fast (ages 21+) and full abstinence.  Two collations and a single meatless meal. 

In the Novus Ordo, it is still fast (ages 18-59) and full abstinence (14+).  The only two days of Lent they fast are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday; they only abstain on Fridays during Lent.

The sick, nursing and pregnant mothers, etc., are exempt.  Fasting and abstinence should never make someone ill or at risk of illness.

I don't think there are any regional variations - Good Friday would most likely fall under universal rules.
