Easy Meatless Meals for Lent
Lent is just around the corner. Which means for Catholics world wide (and some Protestant denominations) a time of Abstinence from meat during Fridays in lent.
Since it is believed Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross on a Friday, Christians from the very beginning have set aside that day to unite their sufferings to Jesus. This led the Church to recognize every Friday as a “Good Friday” where Christians can remember Christ’s passion by offering up a specific type of penance. As a matter of fact, up until the 60’s (Second Vatican council) Catholics did not eat meat every Friday of the year.
Fun Fact: Because my family attends the Traditional Latin Rite Mass we actually follow the “old laws of abstinence” and don’t eat meat on Fridays during the year.
However ,since the changes way back , Catholics were given a dispensation from Abstaining during the year and just shortened it down to Lent.
Lent is a solemn religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends approximately six weeks later on Holy Thursday, the memorial of the Lord’s supper the Thursday of Holy Week before Easter Sunday.
