Kingfish and Tofu in Oyster Sauce on Good Friday

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life"

Today is Good Friday....a day of strict fasting and abstinence for Catholics. Those who are over the age of 18 and under the age of 60 are required to fast, which means that they can eat only one complete meal and two smaller ones during the day, with no food in between. Catholics who are over the age of 14 are required to refrain from eating any meat, or any food made with meat. May this Kingfish and Tofu in Oyster Sauce recipe I'm sharing today help my Catholic followers in the observance of Good Friday.

I wish you all a prayerful day! May we all have the blessed opportunity of meditating more deeply on the mystery of God’s great love for us...and may this change us from the inside out, so that God's love might burn brightly in our heart and in our soul!
