Friday Penance Returns To England In September


Good for them. :thumbsup: I’m going to have to be a bit more assidous now in sticking to this. I usually do it but sometimes not, e.g. this past Friday we had meat that was already defrosted (by a non-Catholic member of the family) and would have gone off if we hadn’t eaten it then, so I decided to go with it and abstain from chocolate, biccies and sweets, which was much harder than meat ever is :blush:

I like that they’ve told vegetarians to abstain from something else, too. It always seemed a bit of a get out that they were already covered by naturally abstaining from meat.
