Eucharistic Themes in Art: Al McCauley
For centuries Christian artists have woven symbolic details throughout their masterpieces in order to convey theological truths, inspire the faithful, and educate the illiterate masses. Join us as we learn how to “read” Christian art to more deeply understand and appreciate our rich faith tradition, and as a means to encounter the Divine through contemplation. Notably, in this Revival year, we will explore particular works that express the primacy of the Eucharist and the call to live as Eucharistic people.

Why Can’t Catholics Eat Meat on Fridays in Lent?
Have you ever accidentally eaten a piece of meat on a Friday in Lent and thought, “Darn! I forgot it’s Friday!” It’s not easy to avoid meat on Fridays in Lent. Not to mention, it is also inconvenient. Have you ever wondered why we have this rule in place? Well, the rule used to be that Catholics couldn’t eat meat on any Friday of the year. However, through the 1983 revised Code of Canon Law, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops were given authority to require American Catholics to abstain from meat on only Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Fridays during Lent.
13 Meatless Recipes for Fridays
My first Lent as a Catholic in 2015 also happened to be about one month into my vegan journey. It was a challenge to navigate through meals without staples like meat, cheese and butter, but then I had to add another Lenten sacrifice on top of that?! Thankfully, giving up a dietary item for our Lenten sacrifice isn’t found in any of the pages of the Catechism or Canon Law, so I have been creative over the years on my Lenten sacrifice.
