From a reader:
The A word was uttered today at the local (n.o.) Mass this morning.
Is the A only buried by traditional Catholics on Septuagesima Sunday?
(Or can I answer my own question – there is no more Septuagesima in the New Order?)
You have answered your own question.
Tragically, there is no pre-Lent in the newer calendar.
So, in the older use we do not use that Hebrew A word until it once again is ready to rise at the Resurrection.
In the meantime, to prevent yourselves from hearing the A Word, I suggest stuffing the ends of your necktie into your ears and humming loudly during Mass, just to annoy … or amuse… the crying babies whom oblivious parents have parked near you. You can, alternatively, mutter "not listening not listening not listening do dee do dee do not listening not listening" with your fingers in your ears.
You can read the A Word, however… so keep reading WDTPRS’s archives.
