One for the Irish pilgrims on this forum

MAYNOOTH, Ireland, JULY 19, 2007. Permission has come from Rome to celebrate St. Patrick's Day two days earlier next year.

The decision to move the Irish patron saint's feast day came about because the traditional March 17 festivities will clash with Monday of Holy Week, the Irish Times reported.

Under the Church's General Norms for the Liturgical Year and Calendar, St. Patrick's feast day does not rank as high as the Monday before Easter, and therefore, will be moved.

The last time St. Patrick's Day was moved was in 1940 when it coincided with Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week.

The very sensible and welcome Irish tradition is to have day off of any Lenten observance to celebrate the feast of Saint Patrick - much better to party on a Saturday than a Monday - so this must be welcome news :)

Awe shucks! I haven't got Benedict's number but if you contact Augustine he will give you Patrick's private number.
