Q&A

Should the Church be concerned about returning to abstinence on Fridays instead of helping people in need?

8/4/2011

Question:

I received a brochure in my church bulletin regarding the bishops&#039; upcoming meeting. It was from a group of Catholics that wanted to urge the bishops to reinstate the practice of meatless Fridays. Why are we retreating into the past? There are many areas we could put this kind of energy to better use. How about the poor and the homeless? The shut-ins? The people of Haiti? How did this become an issue within the Church? <br />
