Catholics, Go Right For The Corned Beef On St. Patty’s Day!

As my fellow Catholics know, this is the season of Lent. One of the sacrifices we make during Lent is abstaining from eating meat on Fridays. That’s why you see a lot of “Fish Fry Days” leading up to Easter.

That’s all well and good. We’ve done it all our lives. This year, however, a monkey wrench has been thrown into the Lenten machine:

ST. PATRICK’S DAY IS ON A FRIDAY!!!

But…but…but…what about the corned beef and cabbage?!?

Irish Catholics, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Cardinal Cupich has given general dispensation for March 17th.

In other words, chow down!
