Question
Are Catholics to not have sexual activity on Good Friday with married spouse?

Answer
Hi, George:

I am not aware of any such official prohibition in Catholic Church Law; nevertheless, I am quite certain that the practice of sexual abstinence on the part of spouses on Good Friday could well be a type of "fasting" for this special Holy Day in memory of the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ.  I hope this is helpful and encouraging.  God bless you!
