Re: Regulation of New Hymnals and their use

[2] Are the ecclesiastical authorities' saying (and in what form) that any new hymnal has to receive some sort of imprimatur or approval before it can be recognised as something that can be used in a parish? : If such a policy is being pursued, is it in effect a revival or an extension of past prac...

A Roman Catholic Parish does not possess juridical personality in civil law.

Re: Pope's resignation

Sorry, but cannot see the reason for hijacking the First Sunday of Lent. For the sake of clarity: The First Sunday of Lent is the First Sunday of Lent. The Masses to which I have adverted in the Missal should not replace the Sunday Mass. That is not to say that prayers for the retiring Pope and pra...

Re: Pope's resignation

See Roman Missal p.1308 and p.1304 - but I see no specific Mass for a Pope who has resigned.

Re: Hymns that conflict with Catholic doctrine.

What about some funeral hymns that canonise the deceased? Bell/Maule's Go silent friend springs to mind.

Well, I think it's toe-curlingly twee, exacerbated by an instinctive propensity to adapt it to "Hail glorious Saint Patrick". May I file it under "These I have loathed"?

Re: Hymns that conflict with Catholic doctrine.

"One Bread, one Body" appears in the section "The Church on Earth" in Laudate and so is not recommended specifically for Communion, though I have known it used there; "We Come as Guests Invited" is in the section "Communion Processional Songs" and I would sti...

Re: Hymns that conflict with Catholic doctrine.

Presumably Acts 2:42, but it's interesting to note that as a heading it seems to have disappeared from the latest edition of the Missal. The phrase is indeed scattered through Acts - and, for example, we can notice how "Mass is offered" (Paul broke bread) for poor Eutychus who had nodded ...

Re: Hymns that conflict with Catholic doctrine.

All I would say is I'm under the impression that Foley credits Didache as his source for One Bread One Body - am not able to check this out at the moment. One notes Foley's political correctness in the ambiguity of the androgyny in verse one and even wonders, were the text true, how the human race ...

Re: Hymns that conflict with Catholic doctrine.

Colin Donovan speaking on EWTN in 2004 said; "The problem is the implication that "the hour" in which grace is infused, is when "I believed." Catholic doctrine is that faith given preparatory to baptism does not confer grace, ............ Whatever happened to prevenient gra...
