I was just wondering what people have done for their friday penance?

I abstain from eating meat on Fridays.

Abstain from meat, wear white over black, leave the TV set off all day.

I abstain from meat.

Fast, no meat. Wear dark clothes. Clean the house up a bit to receive Jesus on Easter. Call harder to love friends/family.

For my penance today I’ve been fasting, no meat, praying, and walked grandmother to the bottom of their hill and back, and also delivered a check for her.

Fasting. No meat. (Which I gave up for the entire Lenten period)
