Perspectives: The Weekly Edition - Fasting and Abstinence

March 30, 2012
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.
