To wit, Good Friday is a feast of grief.

The phrase was taken from the explanation provided by the Vatican. We have corrected it.

Yom Kippur, also known in English as the Day of Atonement, is the most solemn and important of the Jewish holidays. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jews traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services.

The word “feast” is incorrect.
