Why abstinence on Saturday the 24th?

And I am surprised at no reference in any diocese to the Sacred Heart.

Novian: I've no idea. I suspect it's a misprint in the original. I'm sure Rubricarius will know: I'll change the post if he agrees it's a misprint.

The feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is the Third Sunday after Pentecost so you'll have to hold your breath for a week. It's still not the feast it would become in the first part of the twentieth century though.

IIRC some Saturdays were abstinence days too - I read something about it somewhere, if only I could remember where.. I would'nt be in a hurry to delete it. I'll try and find out.
