Nancy B was correct! “The mind naturally makes mistakes :)” December 30, 2020

Posted by ajoyfulpractice in Uncategorized.

Please pardon my error. I just realized that I mixed up my history and failed to note that the Feast Day of the Holy Family is actually “a moveable feast,” as far as the Gregorian calendar is concerned. Per the 1969 revision of the General Roman Calendar, it is observed on the Sunday between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day – unless those days are Sundays, in which case the Feast of the Holy Family is celebrated on December 30th. It is only a holy day of obligation in the Roman Catholic Church when it falls on a Sunday.

This year’s Feast of the Holy Family was this past Sunday, December 27th, which (if I now have this correct) means that it would have been prioritized over the Feast of Saint John the Apostle/Evangelist for some Western Christians. I’ve updated the Tuesday post, as you can see here.

There’s a whole history behind this, but I’ll wrap up here so I don’t run the risk of making another mistake…. That said, if I’ve still mixed it up, please comment below (or send me an email). Thank you, M.
