Conflict of interest for Catholics

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - It's a conflict of interest for catholics here in Western New York.
For the first time since 1945, Valentine's Day happens to fall on Ash Wednesday.
Officials from the Buffalo Diocese say a special dispensation will not be granted for all of you chocolate lovers out there.
Ash Wednesday marks the start of Lent, which is a required day of fasting and abstinence in the Catholic Church.
So you may want to exchange gifts with your sweetheart this year on Fat Tuesday instead.
