Whereas the church of God, so far from condemning marriage, holds it a holy sacrament; and forbids it to none but such as by vow have chosen the better part: and prohibits not the use of any meats whatsoever in proper times and seasons; though she does not judge all kind of diet proper for days of fasting and penance. 4 3 4 0 0 Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8 THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims: 1ti 4:0
