Things are probably different over there in PI, Vince, because of Spanish customs.

Phil, growing up here before immigrating to the States (I repatriated and am here now) there were 10 holy days of obligation and there was no such thing as moving the feast to a Sunday if it fell on a Friday or Monday (or Thursday!).

These were the holy days:


    1 January: Circumcision (now Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God)
    6 January: the Epiphany
    19 March: Solemnity of St. Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary
    Thursday of the sixth week of Easter: the Ascension
    Thursday after Trinity Sunday: the Body and Blood of Christ
    29 June: Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles
    15 August: the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
    1 November: All Saints
    8 December: the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary
    25 December: the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ (Christmas)

Catholics today have it very easy, only three holy days observed on their Solemnities.  But how much grace are deprived from them?  Don't the bishops know how much grace is eqarned in one Holy Mass?  Or do they just want to eliminate the duty and obligation because they know people are not going to Mass anyway, so "let's them not commit a mortal sin."
