Re: SSG Communications - what the heck is going on?

Far more disturbing, a recent tweet about Readers (Lectors) links to a piece on the New Liturgical Movement website by Peter Kwasniewski which references a practice at St Thomas Aquinas College, California, where only vested altar servers are allowed to do the readings. Is the SSG thereby endorsing...

O God of every shining constellation

Re: Proms

By the way, did anyone else hear the Red Army choir singing 'It's a long way to Tipperary' on Radio 3 this morning?
Yes. It was delightful. 8)

"I enjoyed that"
Just a thought; would en-joy-ment be the subjective experience of Joy, a fruit of the Spirit? In which case I guess that it's no bad thing to feel it.

Re: Offertory hymns

"Angel voices ever singing round Thy throne of light"; now there's a cracker of a hymn for the Prep of the Gifts.

Beatification

Very reasonable coverage via EWTN of this morning's beatification celebration form Fatima. Commentators yabbering unnecessarily through musical items was relatively minimal (by USA standards that is). There were some lovely choral pieces; at one point the conductor left his rostrum and seemed to beh...

Re: Offertory hymns

I'm open to fraternal correction of course. :)
