Happy Anniversary

Thanks for seven great years, Teresa! No itch here (well, except for that spot off my left should blade that I cannot reach!).

Wake up ADL!

I don't know what is worse: the whining uninformed ADL or the liberal press that runs to it to present an "informed" counter view on the release of the Latin Mass from jurisdictional jail.

The whining ADL complains that the Good Friday service in the Latin Rite contains a prayer for the conversion of Jews. In the first place, there is nothing wrong with praying for the conversion of anyone who is not Catholic regardless of their fatih. Secondly, Pope Benedict XVI has gone out of his way (and, due to the reaction of the nuts at the ADL, without good reason it turns out) to explicitly disallow any part of the older version of the Latin rite during the Easter Triduum which obviously includes Good Friday!

"Art. 2 In Masses celebrated without the people, each Catholic priest of the Latin rite, whether secular or regular, may use the Roman Missal published by Bl. Pope John XXIII in 1962, or the Roman Missal promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1970, and may do so on any day with the exception of the Easter Triduum."

Now why the AP would go to someone who is not in the Church and rely on him to tell the world what Catholic theology is beyond comprehension unless one believes, as I do, that the press is biased against the Church.

Heaven help us!

Yes, but...

Pope Benedict writes, "The most sure guarantee that the Missal of Paul VI can unite parish communities and be loved by them consists in its being celebrated with great reverence in harmony with the liturgical directives. This will bring out the spiritual richness and the theological depth of this Missal."

Yes, but what is to be done with the priests, bishops, and liturgists who continue to refuse the liturgical directives? That is what has gotten us into this mess in the first place.

The hippie bishops who generally are afraid of a split in the church should be more concerned with the charismatics.

And from the Hermeneutic of Continuity:

It's Better in Latin

Tomorrow is the day! I hope that the release lives up to the hype. Please note that I am not against the vernacular, just the banal liturgy and music that have "evolved" in a Protestant manner over the last 30+years.
