St. Loup's feast day is/was September 1. I have a slide (not scanned yet) of the KL page from a couple of MSs that show that, if it's useful; the one that's in there is nice, but it's not from Sens24.34.104.12 (talk) 20:59, 29 March 2009 (UTC)covalence2

Does anyone fancy working on WikiProject Christian liturgical year? Gareth Hughes 11:09, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)

I thought Bernard of Clairvaux's feast day was May 28, but he isn't listed here and it isn't mentioned in his article. Is this because it's untrue or because no one's added it? Tuf-Kat 21:26, Apr 20, 2005 (UTC)

Confusing mishmash of lists[edit]

In order for it to make sense to include Pauline Catholic festal classifications (Solemnity, Feast, Memorial, Optional Memorial, Commemoration), this list would need to be limited to saints on the Pauline (modern) Catholic calendar, and that particular calendar would also need to be specified: Universal Calendar (for the whole Church), Albuquerque diocesan calendar, Franciscan calendar, etc. For example, the titular feast of a parish (e.g. St. Patrick's Day for St. Patrick's Church) is raised to the rank of Solemnity, most countries have a national saint (for example, St. George in England) which are not considered "Optional Memorials" for the rest of the Church, etc. If the goal is an ecumenical Christian liturgical calendar, this could be an aggregation of various more specific calendars. But I would hate to lose the Universal (RC) Calendar information. Perhaps a split is in order, perhaps a Portal? --Tremont30 16:31, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

How about two separate calendars, one with the universal calendar, and a second listing with all the local feasts, either afterwards or as a separate article? I think it's best to keep the Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, and other calendars separate, since putting them all together might be too confusing. 12.208.18.23 02:19, 15 April 2006 (UTC)


I dont think the goal is an ecumenical calendar at all. If anything, the goal should be to respect the differences among the traditions. This is an encyclopedia. We can handle a variety of lists. And what do you mean by Pauline? That is not the common nomenclature especially since there are two major Pauline liturgical reforms--Paul V and Paul VI. If you mean Paul VI (which is more correct than Second Vatican Council) it is more proper to say "Roman Missal 1969" or reform of Paul VI. --Vaquero100 07:05, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

I've always heard the Tridentine Missal referred to as the Missal of Pius V, not Paul V, who was elected Pope in 1605, well after the 1570 Missal which followed the Council of Trent. "Pauline", as I've always seen it used refers to the 1969 Missal with its revisions. PaulGS 00:00, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

December 25: Nativity of the Ford (Christmas) - Solemnity[edit]

I could be wrong but shouldn't that read 'Lord' rather than 'Ford'?--Jimmyjrg 11:54, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Clear vandalism. I reverted that and the other addition on the same edition: Novus Porno Missae for Novus Ordo Missae Monkeycheetah 13:33, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Only universal calendar[edit]

Is this only the universal calendar? Or does it include diocesan and congregational traditions? --Benedikt 15:25, 25 February 2006 (UTC) and to prove this, read on..... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.202.26.100 (talk) 16:51, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Many feast days on Wikipedia Days pages are wrong[edit]

I've noticed that on Wikipedia's pages for each day of the year, many of the saints' days listed (no doubt in good faith by the editor/s who are doing a good job trying to add to the Holidays and Celebrations section) are not up to standard. Many have the saints' days wrong, and many link to the wrong saint -- sometimes not even to a saint but just a similar word. I'm no expert so I hope someone who is can clean these up.

"Feast"[edit]

A list of feasts might do with a few words on the topic of feasting, if not a menu suggestion or two. Midgley (talk) 16:01, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Of course, it's not clear what a feast entails. Obviously it's some sort of religious observance rather than simply a special meal, which is the regular definition. Some elucidation would be welcome. Kortoso (talk) 16:35, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Kortoso's distinction is quite close to the way dictionaries define "feast" in this context, which I have now cited in the article. Esoglou (talk) 19:12, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
