The Turkey Indult

For those of us who observe the traditional Friday abstinence from meat, note that in the 1950’s Pope Pius XII granted an indult so that we could enjoy that left-over turkey on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

The details are over at the Angelus Press blog.

    Reblogged this on Head Noises and commented:
    Who else did penance yesterday, because they didn’t abstain?

    It was John XXIII, that granted this indult in 1959, not Pius XII in the 1950’s.
