General Roman Calendar of 1962

General Roman Calendar of 1962

This article lists the feast days of the General Roman Calendar as it was in 1962, following the reforms of Pope John XXIII introduced with his "motu proprio" [http://www.ecclesiacatholica.com/missale%20romanum/motu%20proprio%20rubricarum%20instructum.htm "Rubricarum instructum"] of 23 July 1960. This 1962 edition of the Roman Missal is the "extraordinary form" of the Roman Rite authorized by the 7 July 2007 motu proprio "Summorum Pontificum" of Pope Benedict XVI.

"Rubricarum instructum" replaced the former classifications of Doubles, Semidoubles, and Simples with I, II, and III class feasts and commemorations. It removed a few feasts, in particular duplications such as the Feast of the Cross (3 May and 14 September), the Chair of Peter (18 January and 22 February), Saint Peter (1 August and 29 June), Saint John the Evangelist (6 May and 27 December), Saint Michael (8 May and 29 September), and Saint Stephen (3 August and 26 December).

This calendar is distinct from the General Roman Calendar as in 1954 also in that it incorporates the changes made by Pope Pius XII in 1955, which included the reduction of octaves to three only, those of Christmas, Easter and Pentecost.
