For Yesterday We Feasted & Celebrated & Today We Fast & Do Penance

Ash Wednesday-the start of 40 Days Of Penance, continuing into The Easter Triduum & then Into The Feast Of The Resurrection:

To those of you who're 14 Years of Age & Upward, as well as all Fridays Of Lent & Good Friday, no consumption of Meat is to take place, including TODAY;

When my parents were growing up, in Brooklyn, there was Abstinence from Meat on both Wednesdays & Fridays of Lent;

Sadly, There's the Practice of "A & P" Catholics, who'll be seen getting ashes today & at Palm Sunday Mass, just for The Palm;

This group treats Church as if it was a Giveaway Day at a Major League Baseball Game;

"From Dust You Came & To Dust You Shall Return, So Repent & Believe In The Gospel";

In Nomini Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritu Santi, Amen;

Deo Gratias;

Being that it is Lent, "The Gloria" will neither be sung nor chanted. The "Alleluia" will neither be sung nor chanted, as this is a Penitential Season;

"Pange Domine" will continue to be the Gregorian Chant on This Blog, until The Resurrection Season;

& to those Exceptionally-Stubborn Members of NYC's St Patrick's Day Committee, who INSIST That TRADITION be maintained on St Patrick's Day, by Marching Up 5th Avenue, just remember that The Day shall not be celebrated Liturgically, as This is HOLY WEEK & that it falls on Monday of Holy Week, & not a day to get "Lit";

Frankly, I Hope That Edward Cardinal Egan comes from the Steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral, to give The Arrogant Mr Dunleavy, a Grand Swift Boot In Dunleavy's Arse for this Liturgical Faux Pas;

The Church has seen fit to move both the Solemnity of St. Joseph and the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord this year. The Solemnity of St. Joseph Day is traditionally March 19, which also falls within Holy Week this year; it has been transferred to Saturday, March 15. The Annunciation, normally March 25 (which this year is Tuesday of the Octave of Easter), has been transferred to Monday, March 31.

As St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, the Vatican has approved moving the Feast (probably a Solemnity there) of St. Patrick to March 15 within Ireland itself.
