Because of the vagaries of the liturgical year, today is St. Patrick's Day here in the archdiocese of New York. The 17th, Patrick's regular day, is going to be Monday of Holy Week, when feasts of saints are not to be celebrated. Of course there's no skipping it altogether, because Patrick is the titular saint of the archdiocese. So his day has to be moved. Tomorrow, Saturday the 15th, is already taken by St. Joseph, transferred back from Spy Wednesday. Joseph, of course, gets first choice. So today, Friday the 14th, is St. Patrick's Day, which also gives the Cardinal a good excuse to commute the Friday abstinence.
The City of New York, however, in its heathenism, is still having their parade on Monday.
