I wonder how many Catholics use what we refer to in my family as the Sunday Loophole during Lent? You know, you gave up chocolate or coffee or soda or some such thing but because Sunday is a feast day - a day in which many religious communities eat a little better - no fasting or abstaining on feast days - you go ahead and eat a weeks worth of chocolate, a 2 liter of soda, a pot of coffee - all beginning at 12:01am and ending at 11:59pm.
yea it is a loophole
yea we use it
yea it makes giving some things up bearable.
My kids are gonna have a much harder time becoming saints if we keep teaching them the "loopholes!"
So, if you saw I was on facebook and accepted some friend requests you now know why!
Hoping the rest of your lent is blessed.
