The Three-Day Weekend (Holy Name in OF, Epiphany in OF AND EF)

Sorry so late.  Been a busy little bee.  This is an action-packed weekend in which we have:
- First Friday Mass (Optional Memorial of the Holy Name of Jesus)
- Epiphany (Four ordinary form Masses, three of them with brass, and one extraordinary form Mass).

Starting with this Sunday, we are celebrating Mass in the Extraordinary Form, that is, the Traditional Latin Mass according to the Roman Missal of 1962, on the first Sunday of each month at 12:30 PM.  What makes these really special is that the first three of four "first Sundays" are:
- January 5: External solemnity of the Epiphany (the traditional calendar sets Epiphany on the fixed date of January 6, but can be celebrated as an external solemnity on Sunday)
- February 2: The Purification of Mary (name changed to "Presentation of the Lord" in the modern liturgical calendar, but the Roman Gradual propers are pretty much the same)
- April 5: Palm Sunday
March 1, the First Sunday of Lent, is the only numbered Sunday of any season in this four-month span.

So, without further ado...
