In the 1950’s this child ate a hotdog on Good Friday and did so knowing it was serious matter to do so and he did it with full consent of the will and with forethought and planning as he decided to do it on Holy Thursday during the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper.
As he took the last bite, he choked on it and died. To this very day his immortal soul is burning in the eternal fires of hell, thus no need to pray for his immortal soul or seek any indulgences for him on All Souls’ Day:
When I was a child and the church had the strict Friday abstinence each Friday and under the pain of mortal sin if one willfully ate, for example, a hotdog, that person would go to hell if unrepentant prior to death, even a sudden death.
My Protestant friends would ridicule such an idea that eating a hotdog on Friday would send one’s immortal soul to hell if one did so willfully.
Well, of course, even in elementary school I knew that it wasn’t the hotdog that sent me to hell, but my willful disobedience of the Church and its proper authority over me in her faith, morals and canon laws.
The mortal sin was/is disobedience towards the Church and her rightful leaders, the pope, bishops in union with him and priests and nuns in union with the pope too.
Thus, who knows what Summorum Pontifcum II will bring when released and rumor has it that Pope Francis will release it on Friday, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
But as for me and my household, we will be obedient to Holy Mother Church and the Vicar of Christ even if we disagree with the document and even if we think eating a hotdog on Good Friday is perfectly moral.
