Can I Eat Meat This Friday?
Many folks have been asking me if we can eat meat this Friday even though it is a Friday in Lent. So can we? The short answer is yes. Why can we eat meat on this Friday in Lent? Because the Solemnity of Saint Joseph happens to fall on a Friday in Lent this year. So, if you choose to eat meat and people are giving you a funny look because its a Friday in Lent and they know you are Catholic, make sure you tell them that you are celebrating the Solemnity of Saint Joseph!
The Pillar does a great job explaining why we can eat meat this Friday and you can view that article here:
