Corned Tofu and Cabbage For Me???
I have the good fortune to be of Irish descent through me Da, and you can be sure I'll be celebratin' the Saint's good day this coming Friday, I will.
But, póg mo thóin, St. Patrick's Day is falling on a Friday! In Lent! How am I to be havin' me corned beef and cabbage (which, by the way, is an Irish-American tradition, those fine Jewish lads showing the Irish lads in Amerikay a replacement for mutton) if I have to abstain from meat!?!?
Some paddies don't have such a problem, they don't. Seems in certain dioceses, the Bishop has gone and given a dispensation for local folk. Now, I amn't sure if me own diocese has done that and I will have to be inquiring of His Grace, BishopTod Brown, if he will be doin' the same here in the O.C.
And if himself doesn't? As Father Jack Hackett would yell - "Feck!"
