Whatever happened to the promised consideration of restoration of Holy Days?

Perhaps I dreamed it, in wishful thinking mode, but I thought that after the BCEW plenary meeting in the Spring of this year, Archbishop Nichols stated publicly that the bishops had all gone back to their dioceses to consider the 'pastoral needs' of the matter and that we would hear something about it after the next meeting in November. Well, that has just happened, and as far as I can see, nothing has been said at all. I hope for correction if I've overlooked something.

Indeed. I have been waiting in vain for someone to ask my opinion! I note in my new missal that the table of moveable feasts envisages the present transferral to the next Sunday continuing well into the century.

Patricius: Thanks for this clue as to the bishops' intentions. Very depressing, although hardly surprising.
