Just to clarify I didn't mean to be overly offensive about Father when I mentioned his food. I'm just uncomfortable with the idea of a priest eating such expensive food so regularly, even on Fridays and during lent. I'm sure the money and time that went into its preparation could have been better used.

Your attitude about what priests should not do, angers me. It reminds me of when Protestants complain of beautiful churches, though
I admit the comparison is not perfect.

The comparison doesn't work at all. Beautiful churches go to the glory of God and benefit the community by providing a space conductive to prayer. Eating lobster on Friday just totally negates the entire idea of fasting from red meat. Saying that an excess of anything is unhealthy to both our bodies and our souls isn't Puritanism, my friend.
