I hope I’m not repeating a question on the site, but here goes.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the practice of abstinence from meat on Fridays (traditional practice and current practices) and I’ve been wondering about people who already to not eat meat due to preference or medical reasons.
Since the practice of abstinence as I understand it, us restraining ourselves from a certain act and in this case, the eating of meat, as a type of sacrifice. But how does this affect/ how can this be applied to people who do not eat meat? I would think that they should abstain from another food that they consume that is some equivalent to meat. Can anyone else share their thoughts?
