dispensation

Since dispensation was given to most diocese in the country for eating meat this friday which is today, because of st patricks day. Does this mean we can’t eat meat on saturday?

It depends on the specific dispensation given by the specific bishop in each specific diocese. Some have simply dispensed with the obligation to abstain from meat today. Others have moved the obligation to another day. Others have dispensed the obligation but “suggested” abstaining on another day. Others still have dispensed the obligation but either required or suggested a different act of penance or charity on another day.

It all depends on the specific dispensation given for each diocese.
