Definition of Key Jewish Holy Days and why some are being incorporated into Christian Liturgical Celebrations by miguel de Portugal

[3] Theo-logic behind the New Liturgical Calendar


The Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter, although some dioceses and countries (e.g. Spain) have moved the observance to the following Sunday. (Source)

Shavuot is celebrated in Israel for one day and in the Diaspora (outside of Israel) for two days. Reform Judaism celebrates only one day, even in the Diaspora. (Source)

Immaculate Heart of Mary. According to de United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, "Since the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles, is celebrated on June 29, 2019, the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary is omitted this year." (Source, Pg. 7). In the calendar published by the Spanish Conference of Bishops (Source), it is also omitted, but without any comment.

Anniversary of the Miracle at Fatima. The Miracle at Fatima happened on Oct 13rd but, despite its importance, the Anniversary is not observed in the official Catholic Liturgical Calendar in USA nor in Spain, as published by their respective Conference of Bishops.
