Global Lenten carbon fast returns to US on Thursday

 | 

For a second year, numerous Catholics across America plan to abstain Thursday from carbs as well as carbon-heavy activities, as part of worldwide relay-style, climate-focused Lenten fast.

The Lenten Fast for Climate Justice began its second iteration on Feb. 10, Ash Wednesday, and has involved 54 countries in the now-annual tradition. The ritual is organized by the Global Catholic Climate Movement, which drew inspiration from similar fasts undertaken by other faith groups.
