Re: More from Mgr Wadsworth

What views? I don't know what the views of the editorial board are - do you? As I sat on the editorial board as a 'guest' two years ago when I was a trustee, I am aware of the views of its members, yes, or at least those views as they were at the time. Membership of the board has changed little sin...

Re: More from Mgr Wadsworth

All I can tell you is that I have received a considerable number of emails and messages about this saying things like "The Trustees have lost the plot". So you can only back up a vague statement with a vague statement. Not exactly a water tight argument is it? Perhaps a trustee can tell u...

Re: More from Mgr Wadsworth

I don't think this will do the SSG's image any good. And exactly what is that image? Not so long ago it was one of "hairy liberals foisting "Bind us together" on people" (or something along those lines). The second that the Society actually begins to broaden its outlook, and per...

Re: More from Mgr Wadsworth

I agree entirely with mcb, and am in total disagreement with Southern Comfort's viewpoint which is little removed from sticking one's fingers in one's ears and shouting loudly whenever one hears something which one suspects may challenge one's views. When Southern Comfort says A significant number o...

Re: Bishop Arthur Roche - Vatican Appointment

No doubt his reward for accepting without question all those changes which Rome made to the work carried out under his chairmanship of ICEL. What an opportunity to reunite Yorkshire into one Diocese... It could start by joining Leeds and Middlesbrough together under Bishop Drainey. And there must be...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

A couple of years ago I was in Darmstadt in Germany and went into Ludwigskirche. This is a circular church seating 800 with a dome and oculus like the Parthenon. Unfortunately I wasn't there for Mass to see how the incredible acoustics worked in practice. Under the dome (ie the midle of the 'nave'- ...

Re: Communion under both species

One of the things I find interesting, and somewhat alarming, is that so many of our communion hymns speak of partaking of the body and blood of Christ, when on the ground here in Ireland the reality is that communion under both species is either rare or non-existant. The norm in England is both spe...

Re: Order of a Blessed Sacrament Procession

The Ceremonial of Bishops makes no mention of congregation then? In other words the most important thing/person brings up the rear, as is normal in most processions. If other bishops should take part in a procession and they are vested in choir dress, they walk behind the blessed sacrament or sacred...

Order of a Blessed Sacrament Procession

What is the proper order for such a procession? We had one round the block this morning and the servers and first holy communion children led off, followed by all the congregation and then the clergy, and bishop with Monstrance followed up the rear (I presume, but they were behind me) This is contra...
