Joseph not Joe ☮ ❤✝���@OLRefugeMonksCA (January 6, 2023) To those upset that Epiphany in the US is celebrated next Sunday and not today: I was very much alive in the pre-Vatican II days. When Jan 6 arrived we were back in school and the feast was pretty much ignored. Certain countries observe today as a national holiday and a holy day of obligation. Observing the feast on a Sunday allows US Catholics to focus on the importance of the feast and provides an opportunity to properly celebrate it, without the stress surrounding Dec. 25!
