Fish for Thought?

March 31, 2018

Yesterday was Good Friday. 


A day meant to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death.


There is also a tradition to not eat meat on Good Friday but eat fish instead.


The tradition stems from the Roman Catholic custom to not eat warm-blooded animals on Fridays, to acknowledge and do penance for the death of Jesus.


This is why the Church encourages followers to abstain from meaty flesh on the anniversary of Christ's death.


But is that a fading tradition?


Surely many households ate fish on Good Friday. For some Newfoundlander's we eat fish for the taste. A taste of our heritage, not religion.


What did you eat on Good Friday?
