Tomorrow Wednesday Friday and Saturday are Michaelmas Ember Days –

It is one of the four seasons of Penitence – The week is the fulfillment of the Jewish Feasts of Atonement and always follows The Feast of Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Saint Helena mother of Constantine)

The Institute of Christ the King as well as the Pastor of Holy Innocents – Father Leonard Villa are urging Catholics back to penitence on these days-and to observe them

Some offerings include Abstinence from meat – a one meal fast – doubling one’s prayers – attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass….etcetera

The calculation of the fall harvest Ember Days of the natural season in the Liturgical Sciences can be found here

The background on Ember Days including colors, recipes, flowers, and prayers to use can be found here –

Example – In small “t” catholic tradition The weather from each proto-types the kind of weather we will get in the coming months – Tomorrow will typify October – Friday – November and Saturday December (No word on whether Pope Francis Encyclical predictions on weather in Laudato Si will affect Catholic traditions of antiquity)

When the Holy Father addresses the United Nations in NY earlier that same day – there was originally intending to be a royal guard ceremony for the 1st time the Papal Flag is to the fly at the United Nations – Instead the office of the Holy See has agreed to #1 forgo any ceremony and have the Catholic flag raised at the same time and height alongside the Palestinian flag – to which the mason led management of the NY Times celebrated as symbolic victory today in their write up
