[is next Sunday the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart?]  I'm talking about the 1962 Liturgical calendar.
My calendar has Sunday within the Octave of the Sacred Heart. Friday is First Friday AND Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Saturday is First Saturday.
Me too. And the latter is also Saturday within the Octave
. It hadn't occurred to me that abolishing octaves could be
a rationale for moving the feast to a Sunday.
But I don't know about the 1962 calendar, since they had eliminated octaves a lot.
Me neither, altho' I believe that's technically the 1960 liturgical calendar
("Good Pope John" XXIII, proprietor). I'd always assumed that when Pope Pius IX extended the increasingly popular feast to the Universal Church (1856), the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart
was simply placed on the first available day after the Octave Day of Corpus Christi
(a Thursday by definition), thus a Friday
But despite the time I've devoted to calendrical analysis, I never pondered how all that above relates--chronologically--to the customary votive devotion to the Sacred Heart on Fridays. Or (having previously failed to make the logical connection) to the likewise customary votive devotion to the Blessed Sacrament (literally Corpus Christi
only, for us laity) on Thursdays.
