IT'S JUST UNNATURAL TO CELEBRATE A THURSDAY ON SUNDAY--WHY ARE SO MANY AMERICAN BISHOPS SUPPORTING AN UNNATURAL ACT?

Thank God the bishops of England and Wales are undoing the disordered unnatural act of celebrating a Thursday on the following Sunday--why would any bishop approve of this unnatural act?

Why? Because they have failed to impart the Faith handed down to them but won't admit it

Epiphany will still be transferred in 2018 and 2020. In 2019 it falls on a Sunday anyway. At least we won't have Twelfth Night on 2 January, as happened one year.

The Latin Mass Society has been pushing this for some years. It is quite altruistic of them, since the only way of offering the Mass on the correct day was to use the 1962 Missal, and people experienced the EF who would not normally have done so.

Corpus Christi will still be transferred, but it was long the custom in Protestant countries, where it is not a public holiday, to celebrate it as an external solemnity on the following Sunday, with a procession in the afternoon.

Why would anyone be surprised by this? Look at what was done to the churches, vestments, music, the mass itself. Much that isn't/wasn't broken became fair game for examination, experimentation and/or tinkering. The current antifa-like papacy certainly is indicative of that mentality being alive and well.

It baffles me why Roman Catholicism does this. People can be flexible. I am Eastern Orthodox and our Holy Days stay on the day they are suppose to. The Nativity of the Theotokos is coming up tomorrow and we, like all other Orthodox parishes, will be having Divine Liturgy in the morning. All I did was tell my work I will be a little late for religious reasons and it's no big deal. Why can Catholicism not get on this?
