Fasting from meat on Fridays during Lent helps us “acquire a mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart.”(CCC 2043). Fasting is meant to free us. It helps us feel our physical hunger, and in turn, our spiritual hunger for the infinite love found only in God.
Gather your community, your friends or your family for a simple, meatless meal, an opportunity to eat while living in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world. If you’re hosting a community event, consider using this simple supper outline while preparing our Lenten recipes.
