SIR,-I was surprised that you allowed some correspondents IC) make a liturgical bloomer in recent weeks and still more surprised that you repeated it yourself. I refer to references to " the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception ".
This vigil was abolished in Pius Xll's reform of the rubrics. and therefore we could not have fasted on a non-existent vigil but we did fast on an existent feast -St. Ambrose's day. George H. Thompson
