From a priest reader:
I’d like to point out a discrepancy, with the hopes that your wide outreach might bring about a clarification.
The discrepancy concerns the closing date for the “Year for Priests”. The Holy Father says [LINK] that the Year “will conclude on the same Solemnity in 2010”, that solemnity being the same one on which it began (the Sacred Heart, which in 2009 was June 19). In 2010, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart will fall on June 11, 2010.
However, the Apostolic Penitentiary as far back as April 25, 2009 says [LINK] that the closing date will be June 19, 2010 (a year from the DATE of the opening). This date has been picked up by the USCCB [LINK].
Meanwhile, the Congregation for Clergy’s site [LINK] gives the closing date as June 11, 2010.
Two dicasteries of the Holy See which are central to this special Year seem to have different dates.
I suspect that the correct date is 11 June, the Feast of the Sacred Heart, since that is what the Congregation for Clergy says and it is what the Holy Father intimated in "on the same solemnity".
If that is so, then the USCCB has the wrong date.
I hope we can get some clarity soon.
