Re: Remembrance Sunday or 33rd of the Year

The Liturgy Office web site says On Rembrance Sunday (2nd Sunday in November) one Mass may be replaced by a Mass for the Dead , so I guess the permission applies nationally. At my place of worship, rather than having a Requiem, we have an act of Remembrance at 11.00 (normal start time for the Mass),...

Re: Cardinal Sarah

On the translation of GIRM 299, there's a discussion on Pray Tell at the moment, including this helpful comment : A more idiomatic and more accurate rendering would be: Wherever it is possible to do so, the main altar should be separated from the wall, so that it is easy to walk around it and to cel...

Re: Cardinal Sarah

I think he's asking in a personal capacity, rather than giving orders; I don't believe he has the authority to do the latter. The Catholic Herald is spinning it by using the verb ask , as if it was a courteous instruction from on high, but not so long ago he was urging , which, in spite of the seemi...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

One theory why the Kyrie remained in Greek is that some of the settings that we use today (e.g. Kyrie XVI) were already in existence at the time the liturgy went from Greek into Latin, and so they simply kept them. I think the chronology might be wrong for that. The Kyrie isn't mentioned in the Lat...

If a Ritual Mass is not allowed, it's because the day is too important (Holy Week, Easter Octave, Solemnities, Sundays of Advent/Lent/Easter). These have their own rubrics as to whether the Gloria is included in the Mass of the day or not.

Re: How great thou art

I think the one who is still alive is Gerard J. Yep, that's the one. He had a nice article in the Tablet a couple of weeks ago on Amoris Laetitia , pointing up the distinction between making a change to a teaching of the Church, and making an improvement on the sensitivity with which it might be in...

If I remember right, HCPT was originally Handicapped Children's Pilgrimage Trust, but that's given way to a more PC reading of the same initials.

Very sad news indeed. Not many people have done more for music and liturgy in the Church in this country.

Re: Music Animator required

What do they actually do? The only ones I have seen are in France. There they seem to run the Liturgy of the Word from a mike up front, and wave an arm around in a fairly meaningless way while people are trying to ignore them and get on with the singing. Is that it? I'd like to think of myself as p...

Re: Enrance Antiphon for Ss Peter & Paul - source?

It's not possible they could be modern, is it? Definitely an old text. Here's a 14th century chant manuscript. (Click on the little arrow near the top if the side bar is in the way.) These are the ones who, living in the flesh is Isti sunt qui viventes in carne , starting at the big red capital I i...
