The Second Sunday after Pentecost, upcoming in the proper calendar and rite, or the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time in Year C of that same disordered liturgy, (I cannot recall the current Year as I've not been to a nervous disordered rite in many months) it is Cana Sunday, when the Gospel read is that of the Wedding Feast of Cana and the changing by our Lord of the water into wine. It is casually plugged in to Year C, whist A and B are different, thus changing the whole liturgical understanding of these days and depriving the faithful and clergy of the deep spiritual richness of the liturgical season.
What do these all have to do with each other?
Up until the sinister Annibale Bugnini had his way with Pius XII, Epiphany had its own Octave. While it was killed off in 1955, remnants of it survived in the 1962 Roman Missal and actually survive in the Lectionary and Responsorial Psalm of the 1970 Missal. It was a grievous error to do away with it over 60 years ago. It should be brought back for both Missals, or at least until the nervous disorder is abrogated, and anathematised, as it will be. In our home, however, we have been celebrating the Octave, as we have been reading the Divine Office of Matins, Lauds and Vespers according to the Divino Afflatu, the pre-Bugnini and uncontaminated Office as reformed by Pope St. Pius X. It is available at the tab above "Divine Office 1962."
Further, the early Fathers of the Church believed that the Epiphany, -- the singular visit of the Wise Men, and, the Baptism of the Lord and the Wedding Feast at Cana occurred on the same date in the respective years of Our Lord's life. The antiphons throughout the week recall this daily.
I wish to point you now from here to a fine blog called The New Theological Movement.
It will explain it all and hopefully, bring you to a greater understanding on what was lost in our faith and culture and what we must struggle to restore, in spite of the Vatican and the malefactors who undermined our Faith, the Liturgy and the Culture. This post, at A Catholic Life, looks at some others aspects of the Octaves.
When I was a child, my mother always referred to the Epiphany as "Little Christmas." It has always been considered a continuation of Christmas.
Just one more reason to abandon the Novus Ordo and its corrupted calendar and return to the tradition and faith of our fathers.
