Q. 1. I noticed that Catholic restaurants in hospitals and Catholic Universities sell meals that contain meat on Friday. I thought Catholics are supposed to abstain from meat on Fridays. Has that changed?
A. 1. Catholic restaurants sell meals that contain meat on Friday because their customers include both, Catholics and non-Catholics. Friday remains as a day when Catholics should abstain from eating meat. By courtesy, Catholic restaurants should remind their Catholic patrons that they are to abstain from meat on Fridays.
