25Th Sunday After Pentecost(Restored 6th Sunday After Epiphany)

16 Nov

Time After Pentecost in the Tridentine Calendar, used to be the Calendar for me until Sunday, November 30th, 1969, when the Roman/Latin Rite changed over to The Novus Ordo.
It is(Tridentine)my Catholic Calendar again. To me, Sundays in Ordinary Time do not have the same verve as Sundays after Specific Feasts of The Church. Going Generic was NOT a Good Idea. It was 6 Sundays After Epiphany and Septuagessima Sundays, which led to the Sundays of Lent & then the Easter Cycle, concluding with The Octave of Pentecost. Killing off The Octave of Pentecost in The Roman/Latin Rite Catholic Church, was a Concession to Protestants.

During 2015, we had an Early Lent due to an early Easter, hence no 6th Sunday After Epiphany & no Septuagesima, so on the 25th Sunday After Pentecost, the 6th Sunday After Epiphany was restored. The Epistle, Gradual & Alleluia & Gospel, followed The After Epiphany Cycle, which is part of the Christmas Cycle, so the Easter & Christmas Cycles met, as this only occurs in the Tridentine Form of The Roman/Latin Rite, as such arrangement does NOT exist in the Ordinary Form of Mass.
St. Paul spoke of Hope & The Power of The Holy Ghost, while in the 13th Chapter of The Holy Gospel According to Saint Matthew, Christ spoke in Parables, in regards to the Tiny Mustard Seed & the Bread With The Leaven, for both rose to greater heights.
Next Sunday there are two forms celebrated in The Roman/Latin Rite. The Tridentine Latin Mass Calendar calls this Sunday “The 26th & Last Sunday After Pentecost”, which preaches the End Of The World.
In the Novus Ordo Mass Calendar, It is The Feast of Christ The King, on the B Cycle Readings.
The Next Sunday on both Calendars is The 1st Sunday of Advent.

The Year is passing quickly.
