Interesting liturgical calendar situation coming up in a couple of weeks

All Souls Day (November 2nd) falls on a Sunday this year. Thus, according to the Extraordinary Form calendar, the celebration of the Feast is moved to the next day, November 3rd. So, on Sunday the Mass will be the 25th Sunday after Pentecost. If that isn't confusing enough, the proper for the 25th Sunday after Pentecost will be that of the 4th Sunday after Epiphany. Goodness!

All Saints Day will be as usual on Saturday, November 1st and is a Holy Day of Obligation.
