Fish fry Friday feasts

 |  NCR Today

While I was looking for something else, I found this over on the web site of the Catholic Times of Springfield, Ill. The headline caught my attention, and as a lover of fish, I have to confess this question has crossed my mind many times during many Lents: Do no-meat Lenten Fridays count less if you like fish?

And if you saw the line to my parish's Knights of Columbus Friday night fish fry winding out the gymnasium door, up the stairs and down the hall, you too would have to wonder: Is this really a sacrifice?
