Non-ascension Day

Today should have been Ascension Day, but alas, it's on hold until Sunday. No disrespect intended, but I think this is a stupid decision. It messes up the calendar, it wrecks the Novena leading to Pentecost, and it insults the Faithful by implying they're too lazy to attend Mass today.

Reverend Fathers in God, could we please have Ascension Day back?

(A small consolation: we did get to celebrate the memorial of St. Joseph the Worker today, but I'm sure our Lord's foster father would have been quite willing to step aside for occasion.)
