  • "The Bible says that Progressives are estranged from God"

    Sometimes dynamic translations do cause unforeseen problems. A Word Study. Folks, some times you have to hand it to Bible translators because in their quest to make the Bible understandable and relevant to today, they in fact may make it too understandable and too relevant. Consider how the New American Bible translates 2 John 1:9: Anyone who is so "progressive" as not to remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God; whoever remains in the teaching has the Father and the Son.Now the footnote that accompanies this verse explains is as follows: Anyone who is so "progressive":...

    Iudica me, Deus, et discerne causam meam de gente non sancta: ab homine iniquo et doloso erue me. Quia tu es, Deus, fortitudo mea: quare me reppulisti? et quare tristis incedo, dum affligit me inimicus? Emitte lucem tuam et veritatem tuam: ipsa me deduxerunt, et adduxerunt in montem sanctum tuum, et in tabernacula tua. Et introibo ad altare Dei: ad Deum, qui laetificat iuventutem meam. Confitebor tibi in cithara, Deus, Deus meus: quare tristis es, anima mea? et quare conturbas me? Spera in Deo, quoniam adhuc confitebor illi: salutare vultus mei, et Deus meus. -- Psalmus 42, Breviarium Romanum,...
  • (Must Read!): Rediscovering traditionalism Benedict XVI's popular new traditionalism

    Rediscovering traditionalism By John Casey On 14th June this year about 1,500 people filled Westminster Cathedral. Every seat was taken; people stood in the aisles and spilled out on to the piazza outside. The occasion was a mass, but not an ordinary mass. It was indeed a mass in what is now officially called the ``extraordinary form'' of the Roman rite, i.e. the mass as it had existed before the changes that followed the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). It was celebrated by Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, and was the first mass in the traditional form to be celebrated in the Cathedral...

    ROME (CNS) -- Rather than being grateful, some people have reacted to Pope Benedict XVI's wider permission for the celebration of the Tridentine Mass with further demands, said Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos. The cardinal, president of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei," spoke Sept. 16 at a conference marking the first anniversary of "Summorum Pontificum," the document by which Pope Benedict expanded access to the Tridentine rite, the Mass rite used before the Second Vatican Council. Cardinal Castrillon, whose commission works with communities using the old rite, said his office continues to receive letters requesting the Tridentine rite be used not...

    ZNA ^ | September 9, 2008 | Father Edward McNamara
    Q: I am the parish priest for a dual-form parish and some of the complications are currently unavoidable. I have returned the tabernacle to the center and shifted the presider's chair to the side. The free-standing altar is used for both forms, with the placement of altar cards and candles in the traditional form and the resetting of the altar for the celebration of the ordinary form. I've returned the altar rail in two spots and cushions for kneeling at the reception of Communion. Part of the "experiment" of Pope Benedict XVI lies in the "working" of both forms where...

Not only does it have the all the prayers of the Little Office, it contains something I had never seen before, a commentary on the prayers themselves. She knew that I would greatly appreciate this book, and I am truly grateful that she...

    Old is New: Cedar church offers weekly Latin Mass BY GRETCHEN MURRAY Local Columnist Everything old is new again. That's particularly true for Roman Catholics who, once again, can attend weekly Mass in its original Latin form. Last year's decision by Pope Benedict XVI to restore the 16th Century Tridentine Mass has evolved into one of the worship opportunities the Diocese of Gaylord has offered since May 11. A weekly Latin Mass is celebrated at 12:45 p.m. Sundays at Holy Rosary Church in Cedar. The Latin Mass, which the Catholic Church refers to as the extraordinary form of the Mass,...

    ...One hundred parishioners of St John the Evangelist, Allerton Bywater, have petitioned their bishop... to allow the parish to celebrate Mass only in Latin, in both the old and new forms. Instead, he is closing the church... and has told the parish priest, Fr Mark Lawler, that he will not be appointed to a new parish because his ministry is "divisive". Fr Lawler told me today: "This is a parish that does exactly what the Holy Father tells us to do.... The bishop is determined to squash it, and to destroy me because he doesn't want me moving to another...

    One year after the release of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, The Liturgical Institute at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois, announced that it has added a required 3-credit course on the history and spirituality of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite to its roster of classes. The Liturgical Institute was founded by Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago (left) in the year 2000. Though the primary emphasis of the Institute involves the reformed liturgical books, this course comes in response to the call of Pope Benedict for freer study and use of the...

    When I heard the report at the end of last week that Pope Benedict has asked the Congregation for Divine Worship to study some potential changes to the liturgy, I got very excited. Think about all the possibilities! Think about what the Mass could be, rather than what it often is. The abuses and experiments, gone! The tawdry celebration of self, gone! Latin back in its proper place! Gregorian Chant! The priest's magnificent back on glorious display! The more I thought about it the more excited I became and the more I started wondering how would such a change be...

    Vero Possumus, latin for yes we can (or at least an approxmimation of it). While I think that every failed campaign has a "jump the shark" moment. I'm thinking Michael Dukakis in the tank and John Kerry in the bunny suit. Therefore I'm thinking that Obama's campaign has just jumped the possom. What I was hoping is that all you Freepers out there with a command of Latin could have some fun with this and give us alternatives for his use on his new presidential seal. Of course faux Latin would also be much fun

    The prolific author writes in the pages of Newsweek (to which he is a regular contributor) of how he thinks Pope Benedict XVI is working to implement the "reform of the reform": Is Pope Benedict XVI determined to restore the Latin mass that many Roman Catholics thought had been consigned to the dustbin of history? The answer, in short, is both yes and no. But neither the "yes" nor the "no" quite fits the conventional speculations in several recent media reports following off-the-cuff remarks to a small Catholic association in Great Britain by a Vatican official. In unraveling this, it...

    Rockville Centre — They were not yet born — nor had their parents probably met — when the new liturgy was introduced in the 1960s, but a dozen teens and pre-teens last Sunday were happy to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in a Latin ceremony. Bishop William Murphy conferred the sacrament last Sunday at St. Agnes Cathedral here for a group of children and one adult whose families regularly attend an approved Tridentine (traditional Latin) Mass offered each Sunday at St. Matthew’s Church in Dix Hills. Bishop Murphy administered the sacrament of confirmation in the traditional Latin rite during a...

    Who needs DisneyWorld when you've got a showdown on translations? By the looks of it, yesterday's Orlando debate and vote on the proposed revision of the Proper of Seasons packed even more of a punch than expected. NCR's John Allen relays: [O]nly seven bishops out of 250 Latin Rite prelates in the United States even bothered to propose amendments to the text, a clear sign that most felt the handwriting was on the wall. Like it or not, many concluded, Rome has made clear that the new translations must be closer to the Latin, both in structure and word...

    Notes printed in Berlin have more currency for bank customers who fear a 'value crisis' Ordinary Germans have begun to reject euro bank notes with serial numbers from Italy, Spain, Greece and Portugal, raising concerns that public support for monetary union may be waning in the eurozone's anchor country. Germany's Handelsblatt newspaper says bankers have detected a curious pattern where customers are withdrawing cash directly from branches, screening the notes to determine the origin of issue. They ask for paper from the southern states to be exchanged for German notes. Each country prints its own notes according to its economic...
