A blessed Epiphany to you

This is one of the two times of the year when this "transferring Solemnities to Sunday" really grinds my gears. It makes a hash out of the 12 days of Christmas. I know the stated reason for why the bishops do this: they want more people to be exposed to the mysteries of this feast. It seems to me that if they want people to have greater knowledge of the Epiphany, people would remember it more readily if they had to go out of their way to attend Mass on a weekday. The same goes for Ascension Thursday Sunday, which makes a hash out of the 40 days the resurrected Jesus spent with the Apostles before his ascension into heaven.
