Reminder – Feast of the Ascension tomorrow! May 12, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, General Catholic.

Yes, the Feast of the Ascension is no longer a Holy Day of Obligation in pretty much every diocese in the US, the holy day being moved to Sunday (because we don’t want to be inconvenient).  But, tomorrow is the ‘real’ day – the Lord ascended to Heaven 40 days after his Resurrection. 

Fr. John Trigilio and Fr. John Zuhlsdorf have already ranted about this practice of moving our great feast days to Sunday.  That doesn’t mean that the faithful cannot celebrate Mass on the actual feast day!  Get on out and go to Mass!  I’ll see you there.  Oh, and we’re going to have a little special something tomorrow at St. Mark in Plano.

Peggy at Southern Illinois Catholic doesn’t rant; she’s succinct!

“Well, when Jesus tries to ascend to heaven tomorrow, He will find Himself parked on the tarmac until Sunday in the U.S.
A good thing He’s divine. He may not do well surviving on some peanuts and water in the interim.”
