  • Grace Notes: Holy day of non-obligation

    Today is a holy day. Some churches designate certain days as holy days of obligation, which (I think) means obligatory attending of services on days you otherwise wouldn't.

    It's raining, although that doesn't particularly make it holy. It does help, however. At least today. At least that's what I think.
