On the St. Patrick's Day Dispensation, or the Lack Thereof SERVANT AND STEWARD - March 9, 2017 While other Bishops and Archbishops have seen fit to grant a dispensation from the law of abstinence on the Fridays of Lent to allow Catholics to eat meat this year on the memorial of Saint Patrick, His Excellency the Most Reverend Thomas John Paprocki has decided not to grant such a dispensation from the law.

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - March 7, 2017 Wednesday of the First Week in Lent (Jonah 3:1-10; Luke 11:29-32) There was a time within the memory of many living today when most Catholics would eat meat only once a day and fast between meals during the Lent.

St Patrick's Day Hullabaloo Καθολικός διάκονος - March 7, 2017 This year St Patrick's Day, which falls during Lent every year, is on a Friday. Of course, on Fridays during the holy season of Lent, Roman Catholics are obliged to abstain from eating the meat of warm-blooded animals (there is no obligation to eat fish). Technically, this means that eating meat on a Friday of Lent is a sin, a confessable offense. At least in the United States, it is ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/03/the-predictable-hullabaloo-over-st.html

Lent DIAKONIA - DEACON PAT KEARNS - March 4, 2017 (Article taken from Catholic Answers) Lent . —The Teutonic word Lent, which we employ to denote the forty days' fast preceding Easter, originally meant no more than the spring season.

This in turn imitated the Greek name ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/YhiD/~3/ucY4jTVseiM/lent.html

How Is Everyone's Lent Going? CATHOLICISM FOR EVERYONE - March 3, 2017 Hi everyone, just checking in to see how your Lent is progressing. We are still in the initial stages of it. I gave up soft drinks, but I should do more I think. That's not much of a penance really, even though I partake frequently. I'm in awe of some people. I knew one girl who gave up meat FOR ALL OF LENT! Crazy. She is Indian so maybe they know more recipes. My fiancée is Indian and vegetarian all her life. But still that's a ...http://holymotherchurch.blogspot.com/2017/03/how-is-everyones-lent-going.html

Corned Beef Conundrum: Some Dioceses Give St. Patrick's Day Dispensation CLERICAL WHISPERS - March 2, 2017 When St. Patrick's Day falls on a Friday, as it does about every seven years, the Lenten rule requiring Catholics to abstain from meat on Fridays collides with the long-held tradition of eating corned beef and cabbage. The two occasions meet this year. March 17 marks the celebration of St. Patrick — known as the Apostle of Ireland for his years of missionary work there — and it also is a celebration of all things Irish and even green. This March ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/03/corned-beef-conundrum-some-dioceses.html

It ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/03/ash-wednesday-lent-begins.html

God is in control. You are not. Diminish the drama in your life and let God's life be shown through you." It seems that with all the words reminding us of God's favor, we still try to control what is simply beyond our grasp. We worry too much and let drama ruin our peace. In the confessional, I often hear of the anguish people hold onto because of a sin ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/02/the-eighth-sunday-of-ordinary-time.html
