One Lord, One Faith, One Liturgical Calendar

Again, via Zenit, the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales received word from Rome that the 1962 and 1970 Missals are to follow the same liturgical calendar with regard to holy days of obligation, including instances where the observance is transferred to Sunday.

Any guesses as to how this will be swallowed among traditionalists?

    Given the well-known history of the no-quarter, clenched-fist-of-fellowship approach of the English and Welsh episcopal conference toward traditionalists, not well. Implementing Summorum Pontificum can be a headache to even the most well meaning of bishops. But the English and Welsh have been consistently petty pettifoggers about it.

    Nevermind the traditionalists. The transferral of Holy Days is a sticky subject for the O.F. as much as it is for the E.F. I have a sister who has missed Ascension Thursday in the past because she’d be in another diocese in another state on Thursday (where the Ascension was transferred to Sunday) and then back in her home diocese on Sunday (where the Ascension was celebrated on Thursday).

    And does this mean there’s no Septuagisma in the E.F. anymore? And that there’s no longer a “Passion Sunday” and a “Palm Sunday”?
