As I look at the calendar, as I read comments on the blog, as I read my email, pace Johnny Mercer, is you is or is you ain’t Ember Saturday?
Today I said the Mass for Ember Saturday. I think I was correct to do so.
Editions of the Ordo for the older, traditional Mass indicate that this week was Ember Week for Saturday (e.g., the FSSP Ordo).
However, some people think it was last week. The site Traditio has a calendar showing last week. But the excellency site Divinum Officium shows that it is this week, and today is Ember Saturday.
The calendars sent to me by Angelus Press (SSPX) have today as Ember Saturday.
I am going with today for Ember Saturday.
Ember Days, of course, are ancient practices tied in part to the changing of the seasons.
