Food and Faith: Why Eating is a Moral Act (Spring 2012)

“Eating is a moral act.” We say this simply because food sustains life.

The Church has much to teach us on these ethical issues. In this issue of Catholic Rural Life we reflect once again on the ethics of eating and what parishes and individuals are doing to put our values into action.
