Do you eat fish on Fridays during Lent?

March 30, 2012
Lent is a period when the Catholic Church reflects on the mystery of Christ. As He went in to the desert before suffering the pain of his death and the glory of his resurrection, we also stop to prepare our souls for the great joy of Easter.
As Catholics we all know we have an obligation to abstain  from meat on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, but does anyone stop to think what this means? Does it make sense nowadays give up meat?
To shed some light on this and other questions about fasting and abstinence, Pedro invited a panel of producers from Salt + Light -- Kris Dmytrenko, Cheridan Eygelaar and Carlos Ferreira -- to share their own experience and try to clarify what the church says when it comes to fasting and abstinence.
Join us for this discussion, tonight on Perspectives: The Weekly Edition at 7 and 11pm ET / 8pm PT. In the meantime, take part in the discussion on Facebook.
