Eating Meat On Friday

Have you ever had problems with your neighbors because you enjoy eating meat on Friday?

Well, in the suburbs of Texas, every Friday night after work, Michael would fire up his outdoor grill and cook chicken.

For Michael this was a great way to chill out after a hard week or working and with the addition of a couple of beers to help wash the grilled chicken down, well that certainly hit the spot.

However, all of Michael’s neighbors were Catholic and since this was Lent, they refrained from eating meat on Friday, so naturally they were not pleased.

The delicious aroma from the grilled chicken wafted throughout the neighborhood causing so much frustration for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.

The Priest came to visit Michael and was able to persuade him to become a Catholic.

After several classes and a lot of studying, Michael was baptized.

As the priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said to Michael, “You were born a Protestant and raised a Protestant, but now you are a Catholic”.

Michael’s neighbors were relieved, until Friday night arrived and once again the wonderful aroma of grilled chicken filled the whole neighborhood.

The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors.

He rushed over to Michael’s place clutching a rosary and he was prepared to scold him for his actions.

When he arrived at Michael’s house and walking into the yard, the Priest stopped dead in his tracks and watched in amazement.

There stood Michael, clutching a small bottle of holy water, which he carefully sprinkled over the grill, saying, “You were born a chicken and you were raised a chicken but now you are a salmon”.
