Che Miracolo!!!!!!! 1st back to No Meat on Fridays, Now This. . .

Papa Benedetto's trip to England seems to be bearing much fruit, maybe his declaring as a Blessed, John Henry Newman combined with Summorum Pontificum/Universae Ecclesiae & the huge influx of Anglicans as a result of Anglicanorum Coetibus has put the Bishops of England on notice that it is time to shape up. Whatever the reason behind it, it is a step in the right direction of restoring the unique identity of the Catholic faith. Maybe the USCCB will start paying a little attention & follow their lead.



The bishops of England and Wales will decide at their November meeting whether to reverse a 2006 decision and transfer the celebration of the Epiphany and the Ascension from Sunday back to their traditional days. If the transfer is approved, January 6 and Ascension Thursday will again become holy days of obligation.
“The Epiphany and the Ascension are still part of the rhythm of many people’s lives in this country, and so we are weighing up how we stand,” said Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster. “Bishops have gone away [from their May meeting] ready to listen to their priests and their people as to what is to be best gained, either by marking those two days in the rhythm of the calendar or with the advantages of an easier and fuller liturgical celebration of them on a Sunday,”
At their May meeting, the English and Welsh bishops restored the discipline of mandatory abstinence from meat on Fridays.
