Not just the churches....restaurants know a good thing when they see it. Every February, every chain in town starts advertising fish sandwiches.

That's how you know who the Catholics are...look at the cars in the drive-thru line.

When I was a kid, the school always had fish on Fridays. I really liked fish sticks, so that was fine with me. I often wondered what the non-Catholic majority thought of it, though.

To each their own. I do not believe on or practice Lent. I do not judge folks who do. I understand why they do.





Psalm 1[/COLOR] and Job 28:28

Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Joh 4:23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

I love the God of my Lord Jesus Christ

Take the topic above and run with it! Slice it, dice it, give us your general thoughts about it. Everyday there will be a new TOL Topic of the Day.
If you want to make suggestions for the Topic of the Day send a Tweet to @toldailytopic or @theologyonline or send it to us via Facebook.

I don't observe Lent. It is not God ordained in Scripture. I understand its significance to many and accept it as a doctrine/tradition playing out in the lives of Brothers and Sisters.





I AM the pie lady!!

I think that like most things if you practice it enough you'll eventually get good at it.

I looked forward to fish stick Fridays. It was years later that I learned that it was a Catholic tradition.

Lent makes me happy. I imagine God is looking down on me and very impressed that I'm not drinking orange juice, or using facebook for a while.

I suppose the trick is to change your daily life in some way that keeps reminding you His sacrifice for us. To me, it was never so much sacrificing something, as doing something different to remind me of Him.
