Perspectives   Do you eat fish on Fridays during Lent?

March 27, 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, Deacon Pedro speaks with a panel of producers from Salt + Light -- Kris Dmytrenko, Cheridan Eygelaar and Carlos Ferreira -- to share their own experiences and try to clarify what the Church says when it comes to fasting and abstinence.
