Bishops OK Eating Meat on St Patrick’s Day

I think they’re kind of missing the entire point of sacrifice.

Corned beef and cabbage will be on the menu tomorrow. Call it a gift from Saint Patrick.

Despite the Vatican’s prohibition against eating meat on Fridays during Lent, Catholic bishops in about one-third of the country’s 197 dioceses have issued a one-day waiver of the rule, citing the benefits of Irish American tradition and community. After all, what do you wash down with green beer if not corned beef and cabbage?

  1. Yeah, but eating fish and seafood is allowed on Fridays in Lent. Which makes no sense to me, because a fish is an animal with meat on it’s bones. I guess I don’t understand “vegetarians” that eat fish either. Fish is not a vegetable.
