It's fascinating and puzzling that he didn't. (To me, anyway; I know I should get out more.) Why do you think this was, Tom?

Re: Robert Cardinal Sarah's message to 'Sacra Liturgia' 2015

I think the cardinal was pointing to the fact that under Benedict there is a new a la carte element to our liturgy. That's an interesting viewpoint, Alan. Can I ask how you arrived at that conclusion? To my mind, Pope Benedict was aiming at quite the opposite! It seems to me that this is an inescap...

Re: Robert Cardinal Sarah's message to 'Sacra Liturgia' 2015

Amen to all that, Tom. You could take para. 3 and see it as an abnegation of the idea of a so-called 'reform of the reform'. Is that project now defunct, do you think?

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...

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...
