funerals during lent
Question from observer on 03-08-2018:
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.

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 donít know a situation or party that would require us to eat meat, especially with the number of vegetarians in our society presently.
