The Angel of the Lord Declared Unto Mary, and We Could Eat MEAT This Lenten Friday!

Hello, Coffee Talkers!

Friday, March 25th -- two important things you need to know:

1. You can EAT MEAT, even though it's a Friday of Lent...

2. Because it is the Solemnity of the Annunciation of our Lord!

Thank you, Canon 1251!
Can.  1251 Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
So enjoy your burgers, everybody! And Happy Solemnity!
Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord.
Peace and all good,

  3. Hello, Jennifer & Stacia! Lacy (of Catholic Icing) and I are friends from a Catholic Mom's Group we used to belong to before we moved to opposite coasts -- now I can only be inspired by her craftiness through the blogosphere. :) Thanks for joining us here, as well. Blessings to you also, and welcome to Coffee Talk!

  4. Leslie!
