Happy St Patrick’s Day!

St Patrick’s Day is this coming Friday and is widely celebrated throughout the United States. However, meatless Friday presented a dilemma for those who wanted to eat corned beef and cabbage on Friday in the heart of Lent. After all, eating meat is an instinct.

So a special dispensation was issued by a few Catholic dioceses allowing a corned beef meal to be eaten on Friday without failing one’s religious principles.

Have a Happy St Patrick’s Day!
