About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

I normally abstain from red meat on Fridays, following the Catholic tradition of penitential recognition of the Crucifixion. Tonight though I'm attending a meeting of my CRHP men's group and one of the participants is bringing bratwurst. Not wanting to attract undue attention, I've already signed up for some.

So the question was, what to do as a substitution?

Unfortunately I just figured it out. It'll suck on toast, I hate the thought of it and it will REALLY be a penitential act.

The worst part is that I can't be more specific or it'd just be putting myself on display.

So why this post? Just as an aid to keeping my big mouth shut about the specifics of it and not telling anyone directly involved who will undoubtedly be pleased with an unlooked for action on my part. If I were closer to perfection this post wouldn't exist.

But Lord, life is really going to suck for a short time!

What I do in a difficult situation (like being served meat on Friday at a dinner at a friend's house) is what the brothers at DeLaSalle High School (1958-1962) told me: charity and common sense trump the obligation at the moment. You can always abstain tomorrow

When I know it's coming up, I do something like skip the sugar in my coffee that day, or eat a larger helping of something I don't care for, etc.

Or, you can do that extra charity thing, and just not tell some jackwagon he's a jackwagon.
