Happy New Year - Solemnity Mary, the Mother of God

Madonna and Child

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou Everyone!

Even though it is not a Holy Obligation in Hawaii, I know there will be many people at all our Masses to tomorrow in honor of our Blessed Mother.

We fly to thy patronage,
O holy Mother of God;
despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Happy New Year. the idiot brigade in my diocese has also declared that Jan 1 is not a Holy Day of Obligation for our diocese. I noted when looking this information up that Hawai'i by some sort of indult in effect for a while now only has two Holy Days of Obligation, outside of Sunday, Christmas and Dec. 8th. Something about keeping them in line with the south pacific area...I don't get it.

What up with that?

I didn't know that Hawaii doesn't celebrate this day as a Holy Day of Mass obligation. I guess it's your bishops decision?
Happy New Year Esther.
