May 21- This coming Thursday is the Solemnity of the “Ascension of the Lord” (its official title). It is “a holy day of obligation,” which means that all Catholics are obliged by Church law to join in celebrating the Eucharist on that day. Sadly, I do not expect to see you all on Thursday, nor do I expect to see even a Sunday-size congregation. What are “holy days of obligation” and what has happened to them in recent decades?
