  • Why The Extraordinary(Documentary Project)

    We at Walking In The Desert would like to let our readers know about a documentary that a friend and I are working on. This is our first documentary but we hope that this documentary will be a success and will promote the usage of the Tridentine Mass (Extraordinary Form) A friend and I are in the process to create a documentary that will promote the usage of the Latin Mass. We want to be able to do a video documentary that will interview priests and lay people who attend or celebrate the Latin Mass. We want to ask them...

    WDTPRS ^ | 3/3/2014 | Fr John Zuhlsdorf
    My mail box has filled up this morning with reports that the Bishop of Fort Worth, Most Rev. Michael Olson, who was recently consecrated and installed in his see in November 2013 at a mere 47 years of age, has “banned” celebrations of Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the chapel of Fisher More College.The source of these reports seems to be the blog Rorate Caeli, which provides a copy of the letter that Bp. Olson sent to Mister Michael King, who is the President of Fisher More College.Here is the letter, which I found at the aforementioned blog:None of us...
  • Should the Church Consider Reintroducing the Exorcism Prayers in the Rite of Baptism?

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 1/7/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    In yesterday’s blog post, we examined some reports on the revised Rite of Baptism being proposed in the Church of England. Many argue, I think rightly, that the new Rite results in a watering down of many essential truths. The longer is sin nor the devil explicitly renounced. You can read more of that here: COE Waters Down Baptismal Rite??But for our own purposes, as Roman Catholics, I think it is only fair, and worth examining that our own Rite of Baptism underwent substantial changes as of 1969. Frankly, I was unaware of how substantial the changes were until I...

    Rorate Caeli ^ | Nov. 13, 2013 | Luigi Ventura
    On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter Pope Francis joins the thanksgiving of her members for the work accomplished in this quarter-century spent at the service of ecclesial communion cum Petro et sub Petro. It was in a moment of great trial for the Church that the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter was created. In a great spirit of obedience and hope, her founders turned with confidence to the Successor of Peter in order to offer the faithful attached to the Missal of 1962 the possibility of living their faith...
  • Four Liturgical Forms [Ordinariate]

    The Anglo-Catholic ^ | 5/17/10 | Fr. John Hunwicke, SSC
    Some things about the Eucharistic worship of the Ordinariates are already clear. Since Ordinariate clergy will be part of the Roman Rite, they will be able lawfully to use the Ordinary Form in a translation which will have received the recognitio of the Holy See – and I am of course thinking of the new ICEL translation of the Roman Rite. Doubtless many will use this rite, since (particularly in England) very many Anglican Catholic clergy have in the past used the OF. Those who adhered to more ‘Anglican’ forms – the Alternative Service Book or Common Worship – commonly...

    The first extraordinary form in a Montgomery, Alabama, parish in forty years will take place September 27, 2009, at 5pm, St. Peter's Catholic Church. It will be a Missa Cantata, featuring all Gregorian propers plus W. Byrd's Mass for Three Voices, a sung by members of the St. Cecilia Schola in Auburn. The Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Mark Fischer of the St. Francis De Sales Catholic Church in Atlanta, Georgia. It would be fantastic to see the Church with standing room only, along with a generous collection for the visiting priest and the parish, and I see no...

    A Papal Masterstroke Pope's Good Friday Prayer Reinforces Infallible Church Teaching Christopher A. Ferrara REMNANT COLUMNIST, New Jersey (Posted 2/05/08 reports were true: The Pope has changed the traditional Good Friday prayer for the conversion of the Jews.  But, amazingly enough, the change is another positive development in this papacy, although I would never have thought so until I actually read the text of the new prayer. First of all, there is only one thing we need to know about the revised prayer in order to assess whether it is good or bad for the cause of the...
