The Chair of St Peter at Rome - January 18

With Fr. Weedon commenting that he will not be celebrating this feast, it calls to mind that the 1962 revisions the to Roman calendar are, indeed, a bit curious. The (this) Feast of St. Peter's Chair at Rome (January 18) has been dropped from the calendar. This feast seems to have been associated with the Feast of St. Peter's Chair at Antioch. Thereby creating a singular Feast of St. Peter. This, of course, is not the only "adjustment" that has been made to the calendar.

It seems to be strange to me that if something is not in need of repair, why fix it. Any comments that you might have Re. the "Adjustments" that Rome has made to the historic calendar are solicited posts to this blog.
