I found this on LHI currawong - what is a catholic diet anyway??

catholic - universal, wide ranging

I was going to suggest "eats fish on Fridays", but I discovered that
this is not strictly correct.  More correctly, it is "does not eat
meat on Fridays"; apparently fish do not count as "meat".

("Why fish" is an interesting question in itself.  Certainly the
symbolism of the fish has pagan origins - as does the dove - but
beyond that it becomes difficult to unravel - not to mention
off-topic.  :-)
