It has been a while since I have offered a different WDTPRS mug for your consumption of Mystic Monk Coffee or Tea. Behold, the newest: the Universae Ecclesiae 8 mug.
As you know Universae Ecclesiae was the Instruction from the Pontifical Commission “Eccleisa Dei” about the provisions of Summorum Pontificum.
In case the obtuse hadn’t figured out what Summorum Pontificum was about, paragraph 8 of UE explains the situation. It is now immortalized on your very own coffee mug.
What a great gift to some priest who doesn’t quite understand that Summorum Pontificum was the real deal?
The text of Universae Ecclesiae 8:
8. The Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum constitutes an important expression of the Magisterium of the Roman Pontiff and of his munus of regulating and ordering the Church’s Sacred Liturgy. The Motu Proprio manifests his solicitude as Vicar of Christ and Supreme Pastor of the Universal Church, and has the aim of:
a. offering to all the faithful the Roman Liturgy in the Usus Antiquior, considered as a precious treasure to be preserved;
b. effectively guaranteeing and ensuring the use of the forma extraordinaria for all who ask for it, given that the use of the 1962 Roman Liturgy is a faculty generously granted for the good of the faithful and therefore is to be interpreted in a sense favourable to the faithful who are its principal addressees;
c. promoting reconciliation at the heart of the Church.
Ever have a discussion about those for whom the provisions of Summorum Pontificum were destined or why the Holy Father did what he did? Stop their gob with this!
Here is the Ur-Mug, the first ever made, from Cafe Press. This the regular sized, not over-sized, mug.
Before I opened the store to the public, I wanted to make sure that the print came out nice and clear. In the images in the cafepress store, the print looked a little fuzzy. It isn’t! It is crisp and clear and easy to read.
As you can see there is text in English and in Latin:
Click and buy. The Cafepress site will sort out which country you are from and make the necessary adjustments for you.
And what could one put in this mug?
