Some time ago, there was a discussion on one of our splendid Catholic blogs making mention of the burial place of St. Jerome perhaps in the Major Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome. This is an interesting story … Continue reading
Today in the chapel of the Sabine Farm, Holy Mass was celebrated with the 1962 Missale Romanum and the vestments were appropriately festive. Here is a little detail woven into the fabric of the chasuble: Continue reading

Today I used the Mass Pro Ecclesia defensione in the 1962 Missale Romanum:
COLLECT:Omnipotens sempiterne Deus,in cuius manu sunt omnium potestateset omnia iura regnorum:respice in auxilium christianorum;ut gentes paganorum, quae in sua feritate confidunt, dexterae tuae potentia conterantur.

Radio Sabina and the Z-Cam are back on the air again. I will suspend them for a while from time to time, but for the most part I will keep broadcasting.
In our prayer today there is a theme of continuity. We even have a form of the word continuus. In the beginning of the Post communion Father refers to the constant helps we depend on from the actual graces God confers upon us. The effect of redemption will be eternal and unending. In the final line we hear of that eternal effect linking and yoking together our participation in the sacred sacramental mysteries we experience in Holy Mass, on the one hand, with the conduct and mores of our lives on the other. For the baptized Catholic Christian there must be continuity between our reception of the sacraments and the way we live. Continue reading
In Latin prayer there is a strong link between reception of the Eucharist and the proper practice of the faith we profess. We are to grasp in the heavenly sacraments (sacramentis caelestibus) what we are professing in “dutiful conduct of faith” (quae fidei pietate profitentur). That word pietas, when it refers to God, describes something of His goodness and His mercy towards us. When pietas is applied to us, it concerns the duty which we owe to God and neighbor. In other words, pietas brings our interior sentiments and the words we use to express them into the realm of the concrete. What we profess must be expressed in our actions and not just our words. You might remember the famous phrase of St. Francis of Assisi that we must preach the Gospel always and sometimes even use words. Continue reading
