dc.description.abstractText from the first three paragraphs of "Cooking Lent"|For those of us who are able to prepare our own meals, Lent can be a wonderful time to bring together our meal preparation and our spirituality. Food is so rich in symbolism. Because it involves preparation, each step of doing it can be open to meaning. And if we are cooking for our family, sharing the meal can become part of our Lenten prayer and ritual.|The Fridays of Lent|Each of the Fridays of Lent are days we abstain from meat together. This is intended to be a religious experience and so we need to explore it and prepare for it. Of course, many of us can't afford to eat meat every day, so avoiding meat is itself not a sacrifice. We may live in a region where livestock disease has caused a severe shortage or absence of meat. Some of us are vegetarians, and don't have meat in our diet at all. Others of us might really enjoy seafood or a fish fry on Fridays. For all of us, not eating meat on Friday, for whatever reason, allows us to have some taste of a religious experience, that places us together with our sisters and brothers around the world. How meaningful and powerful the experience is, depends upon how reflective we are about it, and the kind of choices we make, to ensure that there is some sacrifice and some experience of solidarity in our Lenten Fridays. |Meat-less in Penance and Solidarity|Our desire is that Friday be a day of Penance and that we have in it some experience of solidarity with the truly hungry of the earth.
