Ad Te Levávi Ánimam Meam

To Thee have I lifted up my soul (Introit – 1st Sunday of Advent)

Give Me Back My Holy Days!

Posted by james0235 on May 4, 2008

Rather than just me ranting about how the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is actively trying to reduce the religious practice of American Catholics to a Sunday only thing with their constant need to transfer Holy Days of Obligation to Sunday (like the Ascension) or to remove the obligation to attend Mass if the Holy Day falls on a Saturday or Monday (like most of the other Holy Days of Obligaton), I thought I would just link to the thoughts of a couple of priests on the issue:

Give Us Back Our Holy Days! and Hey You! by Fr. Erik Richtsteig, pastor of St. James Catholic Church in the Diocese of Salt Lake City.

Non-ascension Day by Fr. Christoper Phillips, pastor of Our Lady of the Atonement, a Roman Catholic Anglican Use parish in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
