Good Friday & Meat

The perennial question for Holy Week, especially from children. Why don’t we eat meat on Good Friday?

By Charles Johnston:
If you have any question about the Catholic faith, on any topic at all, ask them here. I’m not a professional apologist but I’ll do my best to give you an answer that is within the teaching of the Church’s Magisterium.

Anything from church history, doctrine, Bible verses, practices of the faith, or even current news in the church. Open to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

If you’d like to remain anonymous that’s ok too. I’ll use the text of your question in my answer, if you rather I didn’t then just let me know.
