I got this question via e-mail:
I have consulted several priests from traditional orders regarding the celebration of St. Joseph’s feast day on March 15 this year.
They tell me this date applies only to the novus ordo and that they will not celebrate St. Joseph’s feast on that date.
Can you give me a definitive, authoritative answer to these questions: Does the transfer of St. Joseph’s feast day to March 15 this year apply
only to the ordinary form? Can the 1962 Mass be said to celebrate St. Joseph’s day on March 15 this year?
What are you hearing your priests say about St. Joseph’s Day this year?
