I realize the Catholic Church has made many changes over the last year, but I didn’t see this one coming. First, our mass and hymns were retranslated. Recently, a new precedent was set, morally freeing future popes from serving until their death if they feel that they can’t properly lead due to age or health issues.
But changing our Easter celebration to Valentine’s Day???
Katie recently attended a Valentine’s Day party at gymnastics. While other kids were crafting, she was busy writing a report about how special Valentine’s Day is.
And in the spirit of translating our most holy works, I have translated and edited as follows:
"Happy Valentine’s Day. It is a special day, the day Jesus suffered his life and died and rose up again. It is one of Jesus’s and God’s days.
Our holiday today is Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t on the date, but they made it this day." (because the party was not actually ON Valentine’s Day.)
It has been suggested that I request a refund for her CCD classes.
Instead, we had a little talk. I revealed the mystery of Easter. Called “Easter”. Which led us back to, “So what the heck is Valentine’s Day?”
