funerals during lent
Question from observer on 3/8/2018:

HI Judie, Since you are the only forum open and this question is with a time constraint, any idea if someone can be allowed to eat meat at a gathering for a funeral on a Friday during lent if no other meal option is offered? Thanks for any help.

Answer by Judie Brown on 3/8/2018:

Observer

We are obligated to abstain from meat on all fridays of Lent and Ash Wednesday. This means that we cannot dispense ourselves from this obligation by making a prudential decision. I don’t know a situation or party that would require us to eat meat, especially with the number of vegetarians in our society presently.
