Perhaps that's a sign you shouldn't go to that priest again.

That's what I am thinking. There was other things that made the experience even worse, but I will spare you all the details. Yep, barring some sort of grave emergency I will not be going back.

Spain and her colonies have a dispensation from the Friday abstinence for fighting in the Crusades. Or for fighting the Infidel; I forget which. Might explain the chicken thing.

The traditional rules are those over seven must abstain (partially in the US) and those between 21-59 inclusively must fast. The current fasting rules are different but someone else will have to provide them.

St. Pope Pius V gave dispensation to Spain, and all of her possessions,allowing them to eat fleshmeat on Fridays, until 1950. Even Texas, and New Mexico were involved. I'd have thought some onehere from Texas would've known.

I never knew that ... was it common to abstain anyway?  I ask because in Medellin I came across something called "empanada de iglesia" ("Church empanada") which had potatoes but no meat, and I guessed it was for days of abstinence back when people followed them ...

I just remember my Sisters telling us the Spanish could eat meat on Friday. In those days I would have to take an Ocean Liner to get Spain, so I have no idea.
So, I looked and found that article.

On my traditional calendar it says partial fast...meat at principle meal only. This is the calendar from the St. Benedict Center. Certainly not modernists.

Based upon a dispensation given to the US ... as Someone already said ... modernist.
