In most homes and restaurant in Louisiana you will find No meat on the menu. In observant of Lent. But with the abundance of seafood this is also a blessing : So enjoy Friday Lent Special :
Why do we not eat meat on Fridays?Abstaining From Flesh Meat is Considered a Form of Sacrifice to Honor Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church used to forbid parishioners from eating meat every Friday of the year. Why Friday? Because that was the day Jesus Christ is said to have died on the cross in order to atone for the sins of mankind.
