…we’re celebrating the Ascension on Thursday from now on. Where it belongs. Because I’m sick and tired of the intense uncertainty I keep experiencing with digital breviaries trying to make sure I’m on the right day. Yesterday, I ended up in the 7th Sunday of Easter by accident and was almost all the way through morning prayer before I realized the error.
That was the last straw. I’m sick to death of this feast transferral nonsense. I can’t do anything about the Mass being transferred to Sunday in some areas. But Ascension Thursday remains the real feast day, and in our house that’s what we’ll keep. I’m not going to play juggle the liturgical day anymore. I’m tired of accidentally screwing it up.
