Re: Yes, but...

What about the text though? Exodus 15, or any psalm; we may have written the music, but the text belongs to someone else, right? We need to ask for permission to use that first. If we publish and make a pot, won't the text copyright owner expect his cut? Yes, that's right in principle, though it de...

Er, thanks. Let me gloss "well, duh" for you - it's "as any fule kno".

Obviously we're talking (hyper-)dulia here, unless you mean to tell me that you believe addressing someone other than God in the liturgy is of itself latria? You're out on a limb if so.

We probably need the Latin here (not to hand I'm afraid) ... If you have the Graduale to hand, which Psalm(s) is this an antiphon to? Don't know. I got the text from m , but it just gives the antiphon rather than an accompanying psalm. In the old rite the Communion is - Gloriosa dicta sunt de te, M...

Yes, thanks, Presbyter, for some interesting reading. I'm not altogether sure that what you've posted answers the point, though. I'm certain we can all agree that there's no such thing as a Mass to Our Lady, and that the Sundays in May are not feasts of Our Lady. But those points are a long way from...

Yet I do not think it at all appropriate to sing a hymn to Mary on this great feast at all. Can't say I agree. Christians have always believed it appropriate to honour the saints (and to address them in doing so), and I don't see any reason to stop now. Mary has pride of place in that, for lots of ...

SSG Summer School 2004

A survivor writes... Well, I made it home again, exhausted and reeling after my first experience of an SSG Summer School. What an experience – five days packed with enough education, entertainment and provoking-of-thought to last a whole year. Something of a cross between a high-powered retreat an...

If you're allowed to wander around Essex I'm definitely allowed to invent new parishes.

Am I to eat the flesh of bulls,

The snare has been broken, and we have escaped.

I'd heard that there were plans to have a "pick 'n' mix" opening rite, using the Gloria as one option, but this is not what is proposed in the Ordo Missae translation that ICEL recently sent to the Bishops (according to The Tablet's published text). It was proposed for the English version of the 2n...
