Catholic Regional Message Board
The USCCB removed the obligation of U.S. Catholics to abstain from meat binding under pain of sin. However, the USCCB in no way "canceled" abstinence from meat on Fridays outside of Lent, they only made it something you are no longer obliged to do. The USCCB, exercising their canonical right from Canon 1253 like you cited, still recommends the faithful to abstain from meat each Friday of the year as the preferred penance, but American Catholics may substitute it for some other form of penance. U.S. Catholics indeed are bound by Canons 1251 & 1252, it's just that they no longer are required to abstain from meat every Friday so long as they actually do a penance on Friday instead of abstinence. The USCCB did not and does not have the authority to "cancel" penances on Friday, they can only "determine more precisely" what the faithful are obliged to do on Fridays.
It truly is a shame that many American Catholics have taken this to mean that they are no longer bound by the U.S. Church to perform penances on Fridays. Technically, not performing a penance on Friday is something one must confess.
How was everyone's Easter.
Pretty good. Family came from all over and we spent Easter together. How was yours?
Inevitably, the traitor's assembly has backed abortion in Ireland.
Referendum next year being floated by the government. Main parties supporting. It will pass.
I have been broadcasting my local Masses online for 7 years. Would people here be interested in listening if I were to post the link here every time Father or Bishop or someone else is live?
