Lectionary for Sunday - the Holy Family - yr B

Not much time for your help on this, I'm afraid, but there seems to be some confusion about the texts for this Sunday - Liturgy and Music appears to have the texts which my humble "pew-fodder" Missal has for year A (it's the CTS New Missal, published 2011). My year B ones are quite different - inclu...

Re: First communion music

Our FHC Masses used to be depressing affairs . . . What an inspiring post, Becky - I've been "off watch" as far as the forum is concerned for some time for reasons some happy, some sad, but having just wrestled with something unrelated on the infernal machine I thought I'd have a minute to catch up...

I'm struggling with the maths (or the meaning?) here, Mary - am I missing something? :?:

Re: God so loved the world

Re: Triduum accompaniment

(Note to self: Calm down, Q, don't be in such a rush!) - I've just noticed that SC was in fact quoting an article by Paul Inwood in M & L, so credit where it's due, and apologies all round. (I am rather looking forward to being taken to task and quoting this trenchant paragraph: But the real po...

Re: Triduum accompaniment

Sorry, Sorry, SORRY - just found SC's very comprehensive post from an old thread about Accompaniment on Good Friday - shouldn't have asked! :oops:

Re: Triduum accompaniment

Hoping for a quick response (given the date!) - and hoping that this has not been asked too many times before (not wishing to irritate) - but as I'm moonlighting on Sunday (being Laetare Sunday) in a church that observes the "no incidental music" rule during Lent I'd like to know if they w...

Re: The wickedness of face cream

Last verse of the Responsorial Psalm yesterday (spoken) was "Teach me the demons of your statutes and I will keep them to the end" :?

Re: Extraordinary Form

More insidious than that, Contra - it reflects the very British presumption (and very Catholic one - so very very British-Catholic) that any conception which involves - er - not being a virgin is intrinsically evil and very definitely Maculate.

Re: Extraordinary Form

I thought I'd read up on the info proffered by Oops - but Francis recently announced a special Holy Year of Mercy, in which any priest can grant women forgiveness for abortion, considered a grave sin by the church. The observation begins December 8, a holy day honoring [sic] belief in the Virgin Mar...
