    Goodnight Father.

  2. EJ says:

    Nine full days left between now and the publication date. Seems that some sort of novena is in order. Any ideas Father on how we can prepare worthily??

  3. May the hard of heart yield to the Holy Spirit when hearing of Vicar of Christ’s will.
    May the eager rejoice graciously and with true thanksgiving to God.
    May the ignorant seek first to learn before making judgments.
    May the learned offer comments in charity.
    May our priests use considered prudence.
    May our bishops be generous and paternal.

    VENI, Sancte Spiritus, reple tuorum corda fidelium, et tui amoris in eis ignem accende. COME, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
    V. Emitte Spiritum tuum et creabuntur;
    R. Et renovabis faciem terrae.
    V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created
    R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
    Oremus:
    DEUS, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti: da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere, et de eius semper consolatione gaudere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
    Let us pray:
    O GOD, Who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that, by the gift of the same Spirit, we may be always truly wise, and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Father Z,
    July 7th is my birthday. Should this actually be the date of the much anticipated derestriction of the classical latin mass, perhaps you would release a podcazt with you singing Te Deum. I have been searching the net for one, but the only version of Te Deum sung with the proper vigor comes to a screaching end when the fool impales his foot on a spike. I pray this information is accurate this time, but I do not want to get my hopes up too high as my wife’s birthday was May 5th.
    Thank You again for all you do for us,
    fxr2

    7/7/7 = Jackpot!

    Thanks be to God, and let us triple our prayers for our Holy Father, Pope Benedict the Great!

  6. fxr2: You could do better than me singing the Te Deum, but… maybe….

  7. Demerzel says:

    Well both the Roman and Solemn tunes of the Te Deum are available online and the quality is quite ok. What’s missing it the Simple Tune.

    Roman: http://198.62.75.1/www2/cantgreg/cantus/te_deum_alio_modo_iuxta_morem_romanum.mp3
    Solemn: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/db/Te.Deum.ogg

    Aaaahhh….. now there’s a deadline to finish learning the Te Deum…. :p

  8. Demerzel says:

    Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum; habemus Liturgiam: Eminentissimum ac Reverendissimum Ritum, Ritum Romanum Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae Usum Traditionalem, cui alii nomen imposuit Tridentinum. :)

    Gosh, is it out?

  10. Aq says:

    Hey, there! Could someone wake up father Z.?

  11. Royce says:

    The news still isn’t on Catholic News Service. Instead, their front headline is:
    “Arms and spirits high, charismatic Catholics mark 40 years of praise.”

    Wow …

  12. The Bolletino has confirmed details of the meeting yesterday. The existence of the MP can no longer be doubted! :)

  13. Syriacus says:

    TG2 State-TV news just reported the MP-news (which they anticipated days ago) but with a HUGE mistake (always the same…) : “The Latin Mass dates back to 1570″ . Yes, they mentioned St.Pius V . The terminology “Tridentine” and “St.PiusV” is misleading indeed!

    Update: the TG1 (more expression of the Italian ecclesial NeoCon establishment) just didn’t mention the news in the lead-in (unlike all media today, even the most secularist).

  14. Syriacus says:

    …And it was “funny” to listen to the noon news of the Italian Episcopal Conference -owned Channel Sat2000 : they put the news in a corner, at the n-th place, moreover saying the same old trite : “The Tridentine rite is celebrated exclusively in Latin, with the priest with his back to the faithful ” (…and nothing more!). Let’s give them time… We’ll soon see the tide of ‘neocons’ “che saltano sul carro del vincitore” , as we say in Italy.

  15. Prof. Basto says:

    Amen!

    FATHER! FATHER! THE BOLLETINO CONFIRMS THE MP! IT CONFIRMS YESTERDAY’S MEETING WITH THE CARDINAL SECRETARY OF STATE, AND THE POPE’S APPEARENCE AT THE END. AND IT GIVES DETAILS ABOUT THE NEXT STEPS TOWARDS THE PUBLICATION OF THE DOCUMENT IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS!!!

    Te Deum laudamus, Te Dominum confitemur…

  17. Matthaei says:

    test Te Deum

    I’d like to know why a 100 word comment would be eradicated due to “error” for not having the anti-spam word typed, even though the previews were processed fine. All I did was leave out the exclamation point.

  18. Prof. Basto says:

    Matthaei:

    Word of advice: copy your text before pressing the send button.

    I do it everytime. This way, if the text is lost, you don’t have to choose between re-typing the whole thing or giving up – you just have to copy it.
