LOOKING FOR MEATLESS MEALS TO PREPARE THIS LENT?
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 meal, an opportunity to eat meatless on Friday 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. And don’t forget to print placemats for those who gather!
When you’ve cleaned your plate, remember to put the money you saved by not buying meat – an average of $3 per person per meal – into your CRS Rice Bowl to feed our brothers and sisters in need around the world.
