I don’t want to start another poll, but a thought crossed my mind.
Katolik in another thread said:
It won’t be as easy as saying, I want to say the TLM and you will receive. Here in Detroit, many people have in the last 20 years fought for one TLM per sunday!
Now saying the NO Mass and the TLM simultaneously is a rare,rare, rare sitaution. It will confuse you because the TLM and NO calendars, breviaries[Liturgy of the Hours],feast days, and et cetera et ad multum.
An example of this is if you have to celebrate Ember Days or not? Or Rogation days? Or Septuagesima?
The thing that caught my eye was the difference in the calendars. Mainly because the other things mentioned are really still part of the church, just not emphasized, I know priests still do the Liturgy of the Hours and such.
Anyway, back on topic. Why does there need to be two different calendars? I mean couldn’t the current Liturgical Calendar be used within the TLM? The feast days have always been a matter of discipline, even the TLM had several changes of the liturgical calendar, 1958 was different from 1962. So why does the Liturgical Calendar and the TLM both have to be from the 1962 rite? Any thoughts?
