Corned beef, now 100% guilt-free!

Good news for practicing Catholics who want to dine on the traditional Irish fare of corned beef and cabbage this Friday. In many archdioceses, Boston among them, bishops have granted a special one day dispensation from the No Meat On Fridays During Lent rule, allowing Catholics to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with corned beef. They didn't say anything about not drinking your face off, so I'm assuming that's still considered A-OK.

I'm calling it "Amnesty Day" we are free to sin for one day of lent. Of course Saturday and Sunday do not count as lent days so the sinning can continue through the weekend. Leave it to an O'Malley to give us dispensation.
