Re: Triduum accompaniment

Hoping for a quick response (given the date!) - and hoping that this has not been asked too many times before (not wishing to irritate) - but as I'm moonlighting on Sunday (being Laetare Sunday) in a church that observes the "no incidental music" rule during Lent I'd like to know if they w...

Re: The wickedness of face cream

Last verse of the Responsorial Psalm yesterday (spoken) was "Teach me the demons of your statutes and I will keep them to the end" :?

Re: Extraordinary Form

More insidious than that, Contra - it reflects the very British presumption (and very Catholic one - so very very British-Catholic) that any conception which involves - er - not being a virgin is intrinsically evil and very definitely Maculate.

Re: Extraordinary Form

I thought I'd read up on the info proffered by Oops - but Francis recently announced a special Holy Year of Mercy, in which any priest can grant women forgiveness for abortion, considered a grave sin by the church. The observation begins December 8, a holy day honoring [sic] belief in the Virgin Mar...

Re: Gloria

Thanks for the reference, mcb. Before getting dogmatic about this back at base, I'd like to know what happens on days when Ritual Masses are not allowed! - can anyone help? (I do sometimes wish the writers of rubrics had the intellectual rigour of the writers of computer programs. It's a simple deci...

Can you give "chapter and verse" for that, SC - confirmations coming up and I've been asked to check the congregation's leaflet for accuracy.

Bingo! SC - thanks for trying, Alan29 but I suspected the link might be to the US version (.com address, and some of the pen names used), but never got as far as seeing it -the download never completed.

Help! - the Missal

Some time ago I had a link to the pdf of the new Missal - which fortunately I downloaded for ease of access. Now i want to give the link to someone else, but I cant find it. I know it's somewhere obvious but . . . I seem to recall that at the time it was mentioned here, but searching this forum for ...

Indeed, Q: I will be submitting an account of the meeting (including this discussion) for inclusion in the next issue of Music and Liturgy (early 2016). That'll be well into the "year", Alan - any chance of a preview of the relvant part of the account on the forum here? We will probably m...
