Solemnity on a Friday!

(NB-Comparison of Prayers for this Sunday will be posted tomorrow.)

EDIT: I was admonished for not mentioning what Solemnity it is today, so:

Today is the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Usually a Catholic grizzly eats fish on Fridays.

But even though today is Friday, it's also a Solemnity, which means we can eat meat today!

Canon Law
Canon 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. [emphasis added]

Yea, Meat!
