"The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have re-established the Friday Penance of abstaining from meat on a Friday.

The law will come into force on Friday 16 September 2011, the First Anniversary of the State Visit by Pope Benedict XVI to the United Kingdom in 2010."


Good for those bishops! This along with Universae Ecclesiae... things are looking up.

I can't believe its the English that are doing this? I had always had the impression they had a pretty liberal set of Bishops?
Next thing - actually getting the rank and file laity to pay any attention to this.

Good luck English Bishops !
