My latest obsession

I'm writing a program to calculate days on the 1962 liturgical calendar, the one used for the traditional Latin Mass/Extraordinary Form/Tridentine Mass/whatever you call it. This time I'm documenting everything as it happens - breathtaking LIVE coverage of a fat guy typing at a computer!

I've been down this road before back in 2002 or so when I wrote a similar program in emacs lisp for the current liturgical calendar. This time I'm writing in Mathematica, and I'm an older and slightly wilier programmer.
