Saint John Paul II - Calendar Change

News and Views at the latest Adoremus Bulletin includes this.
The BCDW Newsletter announced a change in the liturgical calendar for 2014 and 2015 due to the canonization of Saint John Paul II. The dates to be celebrated and readings are as follows:
October 22, 2014
Wed. Weekday [Saint John Paul II, Pope] Eph 3:2-12/Lk 12:39-48 (475) green/white
October 22, 2015
Thu. Weekday [Saint John Paul II, Pope] Rom 6:19-23/Lk 12:49-53 (476) green/white
I've added links to readings at the USCCB.


  1. There is a parish here in St. Louis that moved the statue of the Sacred Heart from an enclave at the side of the Altar to the back of church, and in its place set a statue of JPII. Something about that decision just doesn't seem to have been well thought out.
