Meat on Friday

  /   Monday June 23, 2003  

I was reading through the Our Sunday Visitor, and one columnist wrote an article containing one of the lines used by detractors from the authority of the Church. It proposes that, since the Church changed the law against eating meat on Friday, all those who are burning in Hell for doing so should be released from Hell.

The problem arises in that he fails to consider the reverse. If the Church once again reinstated the practice, then would all those in Heaven who ate meat on Friday when it was lawful be thrown down to Hell? Oh, by the way, I’m aware that the discipline was not so much abolished but changed to allow people to substitute their own penance.
