Sunday 2 November 2014

Calendar Confusion

Today being 2nd Nov is:

Rome. All Souls Day
E&W All Saints Day (OF)
EF everywhere 21st Sunday after Pentecost

Next Sunday in the OF, is it

The nth Sunday in Ordinary Time
The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica
Remembrance Sunday?

Or d, 'none of the above'?

'This year celebrated on,' is a brilliant way of communicating the shifting sands that the Church has chosen to build herself on just now.

Why not go the hole hog, fix Easter and move Christmas to the third Sunday of December? I'd have suggested the fourth Sunday, but that would sometimes clash with New Year's Eve and we can't do anything that might upset the secular applecart.
