Our Lady of The Lake's Homilies

Aug 26, 2019

Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time; Fr. John Kerns, Pastor

During his homily, Fr. John Kerns referred to the 1966 US Bishops’ statement regarding “Friday Abstinence” from meat, and that the bishops have always taught that some other penitential practice can be substituted for abstinence from meat.  For the full statement, see the link below. The entire statement is worth reading, but the section on “Fridays“ begins at paragraph 18.
