    As we start enjoying vernal and summer evenings, the great Canadian barbecue season has arrived. As Catholic gentlemen, we can partake and share such an important culinary and social tradition to renew and foster bonds, friendships and Catholic values.

    Many are those who show their hospitality by hosting a barbecue.

    The main advantage of a barbecue is that you can eat and entertain outdoors, basking in glorious sunshine; so beneficial for your mind, body and soul.

    The Journal of Happiness Studies (2021) states that being outdoors is associated with higher emotional well-being, significantly higher positive affect and lower negative feelings, adding that “there is a wealth of evidence showing that being outdoors is associated with wide-ranging positive outcomes in terms of emotional well-being” (Stieger, Lewetz & Swami). Therefore, in times of social constraints due to the coronavirus, “the ability to spend time outdoors is likely to take on added importance vis-à-vis emotional well-being,” the authors point out. To that end, a barbecue can be just the ticket.

    As a host, prepare for your barbecue event, and for the vagaries of the weather by having some blankets at hand for your guests, even a fire pit ready for a cool evening.

    What I wonder: Is a Catholic BBQ different from a Protestant BBQ or an Atheist BBQ? :)

    *just joking* :)

    I wish that I had a grill to do burgers and dogs on, but the problem is that if it's just me and my family, I'd be the only one eating them because they do the vegetarian thing.
