You can eat meat tomorrow….

Yes, you can and no, I am not joking.

Tomorrow is the Feast of the Annunciation. This feast, when it falls on a Friday of Lent, has, so to speak, “way of right” over the friday obligation to abstain from meat.

The idea is that the joy for the Annunciation is, on this day, more worthy of being honoured than the sorrow for Our Lord’s suffering.

You may want to astonish the one or other colleague and surprise them with a small lecture in sound Catholicism.. 😉

  1. Thank you, Mundabor! I will ditch the plan for the tuna casserole and bring on the beef. Question: I gave up my favorite game for Lent…online Scrabble….do you think I can play tomorrow?

    • 😉

      No RedVelvette, you can not play online scrabble today 😉

      What you give away for Lent you give away for the forty days of Lent. I have given away all chocolate including Nutella (a dramatic and courageous step, this 😉 ), and there will be no chocolate today… 😉

      But it’s not that you have to eat meat today, either.. 😉
