liturgical clarification.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Jim Lackey at the Catholic News Service has responded to my post from yesterday on what the decision of Irish bishops moving the liturgical celebration of St. Patrick's Day to last Saturday means for green beer enthusiasts here in Canada.

So, you are still safe to enjoy your green beer today with a clear conscience (though if you're like me they'll be plenty of guilt to go around tomorrow morning...). Jim also points out that the next time St. Patrick's Day will find itself in the same week as Easter will be in 2160.

(ES also offers some St. Patty's Day reflections)

Also, I wish I had one of these...

Wow. The early results show Harper picking up the BC and Saskatchewan by-elections.

Yuck. I'm gonna need more green beer.

Hey, the NDP won a seat in Toronto-Centre! Their candidate was a young up and comer named Bob Rae. ;)
