1st grade theology

"I know why we can't eat meat on Fridays during Lent," Mallory said.

"Oh? Why is that?" I asked.

"Because Jesus wants us to suffer as much as he did," she said.

It occurred to me later, after laughing quite a bit, that I should have supplied the correct word: sacrifice. But I'm the one who, after helping to serve at her school's PTO (Vegetarian) Soup Supper tonight, will probably go get a cheeseburger. So what do I know of either?

Cheeseburger...sounds good.

I don't know much about either as well. Thank goodness He is forgiving. :)
