Hi there,

My wife's family has a tradition of money not changing hands on Good Friday; probably related to Judas' payment.

I am wondering if this is a common practice among Catholics or is it a part of Church doctrine?

If you could help me I would appreciate it.



  { Is this family tradition on Good Friday, Church doctrine or a common custom among Catholics? }

Mary Ann replied:


I haven't heard of that, but it seems like a nice pious custom.

Eric replied:

Hi Steve,

I haven't heard of it either. It wouldn't be a doctrine even if I had heard of it; it's not a belief but a discipline or custom.

Sounds like a worthwhile custom.
