Boston College, a Jesuit institution, serves meat on Friday’s during Lent – yet:
Last night, Boston College Dining hosted Meatless Monday in “an effort to reduce carbon emissions.” All stations in two dining halls served vegetarian entrees, much to the dismay of the student body save for a few flower children who were in support of the event. Delivery cars from local restaurants such as Roggie’s and New Hong Kong could be seen all over campus. [Source]
Hmm, afterwards do they have the Stations of the Forest as provided by the Columban Missionaries in the U.K.
THE FIRST STATION
The forests are condemned to death.
For millennia forests have given life and beauty to our planet, Earth. They have provided water for its rivers, nourishment for its flowers and plants, and homes for its animals, fish and birds. They help to regulate our climate. In the Book of Genesis, God the Creator says, “See, I give you all the seed-bearing plants that are upon the whole earth and all the trees”. The writer of Psalm 96 tells us that the forests sing God‟s praises: “Let the trees sing out for joy”.
Yet, the forests are condemned to die.
Something about reducing carbon emissions reminds me of using baking soda with Chili to prevent other .. emissions.
