Smoking Before Mass?
#18
Gang, I gotta tell ya, water wasn't part of the fast. I never heard of that as it is in the Spanish Missal and I lived in that time zone.. Smoking ain't fasting either, but it is a very good thing to abstain before the Eucharist. In my mind's eye I can see still men in overcoats with Fedoras on Sunday shooting their butt to the gutter before setting foot on the same city block as the Church. Let's not make this a pharisee moment. It's hard enough to work at holiness.
