Our diocese (Arlington) celebrates Ascension Thursday on Sunday. So when we went to Mass on "Ascension Thursday" we got the alternative daily Mass. We were in the Diocese of Pittsburgh for Sunday Mass and they celebrated Ascension Thursday on Thursday so we celebrated the seventh Sunday of Easter this morning.
Think about it. We missed the Holy Day altogether. That is the nutty situation of the U.S. Church these days. Frankly, I'm bummed. I happen to love Holy Days and we got cheated out of the Ascension this year.
It reminds me of the soup Nazi in Seinfeld. "No Ascension for you." I will remember 2014 as the year we missed out on the Ascension.
