Our Lady's Expectation - 18th December
My youngest son's birthday falls on this old feast day - which along with many other feasts were suppressed by Pope Paul 6th ( not Paul 6th - see comment below). However, when Pope Benedict issued his Moto Proprio on 7/7/2007 - allowing full access to the Latin Mass - this feast can now be celebrated. It is particularly popular in Spain and Italy.
I never knew about this feast until the elderly priest at Mayfield Catholic Church told me.
