Musings about Tradition in the Catholic Church in England and Wales, and an attempt to collect essays and articles which would appear in a Catholic press which exercised critical solidarity with the Hierarchy.
Poor St Patrick ends up on the 23rd. I look forward to seeing what happens to St George this year.
Under the general rubrics of the Tridentine Breviary (1568-1911) a transferred feast cannot be transferred to a day occupied by a feast of nine lessons.
Hello everyone, I wonder if anyone has any nformation about Ember Saturday when it was listed in the old liturgical manuscripts as ‘sabbato in xii lectionibus’ and what those 12 lessons might have been. Many thanks, David
O Rubricari, this means St George cannot be transferred to Monday 29 April, being the double feast of St Peter Martyr. Can St George be transferred to his own Octave Day on Tuesday 30 April?
Flying Dutchman: indeed. It is transferred to 30 April but he doesn't have an Octave.
TFD,In England there was a reassignment of the feast of St. Catharine of Sienna as it was in perpetual occurrence with the Octave Day of St. George. So in 1908, and I would guess in 1867, St. George's feast was transferred out of the Easter Octave on to the 30th April. St. Catharine is celebrated on May 5th and St. Pius V on May 11th.
