In yet another compromise with secularism, in many diocese a dispensation has been granted for this holy day of obligation. I suspect that it mostly has to do with priests not wanting to have to deal with another holy day so close to Christmas. However, the message that it really sends is that religion in general and worship in particular is a thing only for Sunday (or Saturday night, but don't get me started on that.) Well, it looks like we are too busy with football and hangovers to honor the Mother of God on her fundamental feast day.
