Re: Reception by eucharistic ministers

GIRM 162 says this: These ministers should not approach the altar before the Priest has received Communion, and they are always to receive from the hands of the Priest Celebrant the vessel containing the species of the Most Holy Eucharist for distribution to the faithful. A restrictive reading of t...

Re: Help please! - Advent Matins Responsory

It's obviously unfashionbly archaic, and I question it's accuracy ("Lift up your heads. O ye gates" - ? - even my Latin is good enough to know that "portas" is not vocative!) Different versions of the Bible have Lift up your heads, O ye gates or Lift up your gates, O ye princes ...

Re: New Prefect for CDWDS announced

He is thought to be traditionalist in his views, and is sympathetic to the Extraordinary Form I don't know that he is really either. No sign of being a traditionalist in the headbanger SSPX-sympathiser sense. He's a social and doctrinal conservative, which is something quite different - he had plen...

This is a cordial invitation to singers to come and join the scratch choir for the SSG Annual Mass, part of the Winter Assembly taking place in Coventry on Friday 14th & Saturday 15th November 2014. Apologies to be advertising so late - I seem to have been thrust into the hot seat at remarkably ...

Grant that what we sing we may believe in our hearts and show forth in our lives.


Perhaps sing with our lips (or mouths?), which is the usual form of the prayer and preserves the balance with hearts and lives later on.

Re: Pope Francis moves to suppress liturgical abuses

The simplicity of the Eucharist given to us by Christ Jesus is quite evident from Scripture. But do we believe the nobility of the Liturgy originates in Christ or in the embellishments added by the Church down the centuries? Sorry, Bob, I don't know what your point is here. Is that a rhetorical que...

Re: Pope Francis moves to suppress liturgical abuses

...the thin end of a wedge that can produce plausible arguments to reduce the Liturgy to a simple ceremony of the Word and Eucharist. After all accounts of the Last Supper do not seem to refer to processions, choirs and complex musical repertoire. Surely the Liturgy is a (nobly) simple ceremony of ...

Re: Broadcast

I think this is the same establishment that regularly sings O for the wings of a dove at Pentecost. As far as Phos Hilaron is concerned, it's always possible to tweak the words, as we do with Simon Lole's version, A Song of the Light . We just change "now as we see the light of evening" to...
