3.22.13 … fish on Fridays? …

Catholics, fish on Fridays? , The Salt, NPR:  Growing up in Atlanta Ga, we always had fish sticks on Fridays in my public school.  It was years later that I understood why.

Why is it that many Catholics around the world abstain from meat on Fridays, particularly during Lent?

“The spiritual purpose of Friday abstinence is a communal penance to recall the Lords passion,” writes Raymond J. de Souza, an ordained Catholic priest in Canada, who is a frequent contributor to The National Catholic Register. And as he writes in this article, “Friday abstinence is a relatively easy way to give witness at work, at school and even in the family.

“So if youre Catholic — practicing, lapsed or somewhere in between — let us know what you think: Fish on Fridays? Vegetarian alternatives? Or have you given up on the whole idea of Lenten abstinence?
