  • literally ‘to receive a foxy Easter communion’

    The implied meaning is: to be negligent, to act too late, to be foxy and wait until it is convenient for you but not for piety to perform a duty, sacred or otherwise.

    In Québec, Roman Catholics can receive Easter communion up to a week late, up to the first Sunday after Easter Sunday, although this is thought by more pious parishioners to be lazy and negligent of one’s religious duty.
