Does beef broth break the Lenten meat abstinence?


Can I cook my vegetables in beef or chicken broth on Fridays? I am not sure if that is against the abstinence of meat.


Yes, you can make soups made from beef or chicken broth on the Fridays of Lent. For that matter, you could also include in those soups small pieces of beef or chicken.
