Having been the first priest in this parish to have celebrated Ascension Day on a Sunday since Mass was first celebrated here in Saxon times, I am still unhappy about it. Judging from the amount of money in the Bishop's Conference collection for the Mass Media Apostolate I suspect my people are unhappy about it as well.
There is something abot todays feast especially that touches on time; Christ passing from time to being beyond time which is one reason for scripture stating the exact time of the year on which this event took place. I noticed a comment on someone's blog saying that they wanted to start a campaign for the restoration of the 7th Sunday of Easter.
I really do think that when something as drastic as a change in the calendar takes place some type of catechetical material needs to be produced.
