Fish For Friday

I attended Public Schools from Kindergarten through High School. I remember having fish every Friday for lunch.

That was many years ago. Is the same done in schools today?

Trav said, "Sadly you even lie to yourself. Even provoked, you have never provided/posted any scripture witnessing scripture."

Because I am slow and stupid and a sinner, what exactly does the phrase "scripture witnessing scripture" mean?

Could you please explain this phrase to me (preferably without the snide remarks, okay?)

And by the way what does this have to do with eating fish on Friday? If you had read some of my posts, you would have found that I explained the "fish on Friday" question.

Pray for me,

Trav ....I could go on with verse after verse from the Scriptures...
---Monk_Brendan on 11/24/15

Sadly you even lie to yourself. Even provoked, you have never provided/posted any scripture witnessing scripture.
You cannot because the doctrines of men are not found fully witnessed in scripture.
The scriptures I've posted you will/can not discuss, they cause fear in you. Common, not the exception.
Pro 24:30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding,
Pro 24:31 lo, it was all grown over with thorns, nettles had covered the face thereof, the stone wall thereof was broken down.
Pro 24:32 Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.

A testimony to them" The priest acceptance of the man's offering would be public affirmation of his cure and cleansing. ---Luke on 11/26/15

Yes!
But Jesus is Lord and King of the Earth and Nation.

Why does Jesus need a Man (Priest) to state the man is clean?
Jesus healed him. Why did the healed Leper need a Man's confirmation?

In other words, Why did Jesus needed the Priest's approval to allow the healed Leper to be united with society?

Jesus is God and the Priest is a man.
---Nicole_Lacey on 11/26/15


"Okay, answer this. Why did Jesus tell the Leper to see the Priest AFTER He healed him?"

Nicole, Mark 1:40-45 says:
"say nothing to anyone" Jesus told him that because it would hinder Jesus ability to minister as in fact happened (V.45).
"go away and show yourself to the priest" The priest was the one on duty at the temple. Jesus commanded the healed leper to observe the OT regulations concerning cleansed lepers from (Lev. 14:1-32). Until the required offerings had been made, the man remained ceremonially unclean. "A testimony to them" The priest acceptance of the man's offering would be public affirmation of his cure and cleansing.
---Luke on 11/26/15


Monk, I believe everyone blog question is there for a reason. Not eating meat on Friday's only leads to the Roman Catholic Church. I don't know about the Eastern Orthodox Church. I only answer to the question or if someone answers me back about another subject, but many get mad if it is about another subject.
I really like better to answer passages and their interpretation of them. I have enough information right in front of me. Lessons from many pastors on all kinds of subjects.
---Luke on 11/26/15




Trav said, "... Yeah, your ortho/catholic history is the blackest hole of an evil beginning...."

Trav, why do you have to be so close minded? Your attacks on Cluny and me, as well as Nicole Lacy shows me that you do not have the love of our Savior in your heart. You are a bigoted, backwater bumpkin that not only has no love in your heart, but you are a PRETEND Christian. I could go on with verse after verse from the Scriptures, but you would only reject them, and turn your sandpaper tongue on me. Besides, there is a 125 word limit on these blogs, and I would go over that limit.

\\ Most facts with references seen written here about r.c./universalism would be even worse if these facts were exhaustive. Orthodox/universalism is the beginning of paganism. \\

What you mean by "r.c./universalism" or "Orthodox/universalism" I don't know. Do you?

If you mean the heresy called "universalism" in the sense that everybody will be saved, the Church rejected that centuries ago.

I'll bet what you actually know about Orthodox history and doctrine can be written on pinhead, Trav.

Rob, I want you to know that I answered you question because there was a reason why fish or meat was not eaten on Fridays through the centuries. There was a reason why. You asked if it is done today in schools, and my answer is no, not at the school my wife is vise principle at. She also goes to meetings at the district and none have fish on Fridays. Is that good enough? That is right down to the topic.

Jesus Christ is the Head of the true Church. He doesn't need to pass His word to a Pope, He lives in the life's of every believer.---Luke on 11/23/15

Okay, answer this. Why did Jesus tell the Leper to see the Priest AFTER He healed him?

Luke said, " Monk, fasting is in Scripture. But fasting does not mean not to eat meat on Fridays. In fact fasting you do not eat at all. It was a tradition found in Scripture."

Luke, the traditional fast was on Wednesdays and Fridays, and again, tradition has it that the fast was total. No food--only water to drink.

These fasts were mitigated by the original, united Catholic/Orthodox Church before the split in 1054.

These were for normal, active people doing normal things. As much as a person is ill, then the fast is relaxed. For instance, I have several medical problems, some quite serious. My monastic superior and my confessor have both told me not to fast.

the unworthy monk Brendan

Monk, fasting is in Scripture. But fasting does not mean not to eat meat on Fridays. In fact fasting you do not eat at all. It was a tradition found in Scripture.

Cluny, you say you are not a Catholic, but you seem to act as one when you speak for them. I mentioned the Pope because it is a tradition that was added to the Catholic faith. Jesus Christ is the Head of the true Church. He doesn't need to pass His word to a Pope, He lives in the life's of every believer. Maybe Jesus is not the Head your church, in your faith, as a member of the E. Orthodox.
---Luke on 11/23/15


Luke said, "Nicole, I believe I gave the right answer. The RCC has many traditions they included in their faith that are not found in Scripture."

But in the tradition of the Jews--and backed up by Scripture--there are both feast and fast days. Jer 36:9, and quite a few others

The Friday fast was not a law that said you have to eat fish on Friday. The idea of the Friday fast was to not eat meat.

BTW, the original fast was on Wednesdays and Fridays, and the idea, again, was going without meat (i.e. vegetarian). There were lots of times my mom made macaroni and cheese on Friday, and gave us peanut butter sandwiches for lunch.

\\Concerning the pope, he is a sinner just like everyone else.\\

Who ever said he wasn't?

Or are you laboring under the delusion that saying the pope is infallible (under certain very limited circumstances) also means he is also impeccable (incapable of sin)?

And what does this have to do with public schools serving fish on Friday?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

"If you were trying to get a response concerning the Roman Catholic Church and why they do Friday's well the reason is their traditions. They have many traditions."

Nicole, I believe I gave the right answer. The RCC has many traditions they included in their faith that are not found in Scripture. Whether it is fish or meat. As you mentioned, a Catholic can choose one or the other. Or something else they want to use as a token of their faith.
Concerning the pope, he is a sinner just like everyone else. And I mean every human being in history. Only one Person was and still is sinless, Jesus Christ.
---Luke on 11/19/15


We teach and define that the Roman Pontiff, when he speaks ex Cathedra, that is, when in discharge of the office of Pastor and Teacher of all Christians, by virtue of his supreme Apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine regarding faith or morals to be held by the Universal Church, by the divine assistance promised to him in blessed Peter, is possessed of that infallibility with which the divine Redeemer willed that His Church should be endowed for defining doctrine regarding faith or morals: and that therefore such definitions of the Roman Pontiff are irreformable of themselves, and not from the consent of the Church

..in fact many RCC don't do Friday's fish anymore as it was once very important.---Luke

Before Vatican II 1962 or 63, everyone had to have meatless Friday as a form of sacrifice in respect for Jesus' death on a Friday.

Not FISH but meatless. (Going to Red Lobster doesn't count either or eating Lobster)
A poor man dish is the idea.

After Vatican II it was decided outside of Lent (From Ash Wednesday to Easter Vigil {Saturday evening before Easter morning}

Latin Rite Catholics can eat meat on Fridays as long as they pick ANOTHER Sacrifice in remembrance of Jesus' Death.
Or you can continue to have meatless Friday all year long.

John, PLEASE re-post your evidence of co-redemptrix because I couldn't find it.

Cluny said, "Monk Brendan, are you saying that there are conditions under which a Pope CAN err in matters of faith and morals?

Yes! The Pope can err, even in matters of faith and morals if he is speaking outside of his primary function as supreme pastor and teacher. He cannot say, for instance, "Wearing blended fabrics is sinful." even though God defines that as a sin in the OT.(Deut 22:11)

John, you are very confused on Dogmas and Popes being infallible.

Unequivocally, St. John Paul II NEVER made Mary Co-redemptrix a DOGMA!

Give the title of the Document by St. JP stating Mary is Co-redemptrix in DOGMATIC TERMS.

The Pope is only infallible when he makes a declaration a head of time before the statement. Only on Faith and Morals.

If Pope Francis spoke on Faith or Moral early today it does NOT mean he was infallible.

BTW, RCC does not see the word 'Co-redemptrix' as you see it.
We believe Mary cooperated with God when asked by the Angel Gabriel to bear God's Son. She said "yes".

Jesus can't die on a cross without a Body. Mary gave the Body to Jesus. No forcing by God. FREE WILL.

My Catholic friends reactions were "oh well, another movie bashing the Catholic Church". They viewed "Luther" as very one-sided, avoiding controversial issues such as Luther being anti-Semitic.

My Catholic friends were also disturbed by movies such as "Dogma", "Constantine", "Angels and Demons", and "the Da Vinci Code".

Mat_27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

Hi Rob,

If the blog question was removed because of what I said when stating how others felt then that says a lot about this blog...

I believe this blog should be a place where everybody can come and have a serious, honest, and heart felt dialog.

When I stated the word nigger, it was to convey how other blacks feel about there current situation relating to your question...

I am black to,yet, I know the difference between insults and intelligent dialog to find solutions.

I will send a message to the moderators regarding this as I find removing the blog question unfounded...

I stand by my statements because it is my experience...

Thank You,

John

Yes!

He is a good friend, but he can be all of the above.

You seem to never have anything good to say about those on these blogs, including those who agree with some of your posts.

Is THANK YOU, not part part of your vocabulary?

There is more I want to say, but for now
I will hold my tongue!

BOOM, SHAKA LAKA LAKA!!! :D

John 9346, I'm of mixed ethnicity and culture, Black/Italian.

I believe my question was removed because someone used a racial slur, which I myself didn't approve of and found to be offensive.

When I was growing up, my Parents taught us not to use racial or ethnic slurs against anyone.

To this day, I hold to their teaching!

Was your blog deleted the one about segregation in the churches??

The Nazis did not sponsor or use passion plays.
---Cluny on 11/11/15

You do not need to convince me. You need to convince the Jews who lived in Germany during the 1930s.

Hitler did endorse and financially supported the 1934 production of the Oberammergau Passion Play. Hitler exploited the clear anti-Semitic message of the play to fuel hatred of Jews.

Read the 1933 article from the Jewish Telegraph Agency.

Remember the Movie 'The Passion of Christ' (Made by A Catholic for they believed a Catholic Audience)?...Now Catholics know the success of that movie was because of PROTESTANTS not Catholics.
---Nicole_Lacey on 11/11/15

Why don't you ask a Jewish person about the success of that movie?

I have many Orthodox Jewish friends who were appalled at the success of that movie. As far as they are concerned, any "Passion Play" is an attack on them for killing our God. Passion Plays were used by the Nazi in Germany to drive up anti-Semitism.

As far as Biblical movies go, give me "the Gospel of John" anyday.

I attended P.S. Kindergarten thru H.S. too. The 1950s-'60s seems like a light year ago, but I can still mentally taste that Friday fish. It was real! It was great, not mystery meat! The only problem I had was I could only have one piece of fish. That was before they started putting all kinds of harmful additives into food & hormones in live stock...
---Leon on 11/10/15


Not just military schools, but public schools, hospitals and everywhere there are fish on Fridays today.

Pay attention to the fast food restaurants just before Lent (Ash Wednesday: when you see black crosses on people's forehead walking around) March time usually.

They start serving fish. Arby's and Wendy's have a great fish sandwich, but won't start selling them until Lent time.

Hindus like to go to Taco Bell because they can get more variety of meatless food.

People will do anything to make a buck. They don't care

I remember that. I grew up in the'50s, and that was standard. I don't know if it's done these days.
---john1944 on 11/10/15


I would not know. It was never done in mine, and I graduated from grammar school in 1963.

Of course, there's nothing wrong with fish any day of the week.

Or is this going to start another round of BTC?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 11/10/15


Not that I am aware of. I do remember fish on Friday when in Catholic grade school. When I went to public school, fish was not on the menu that I remember.
