From a priest…
On Sunday, even after concelebrating a conventual Mass with the Dominican Friars, I was drawn to assist at an E.F. Mass at a local FSSP parish, and I’m glad I did.
Which brings me to my question: Does S.P. allow for a Dominican tertiary priest to celebrate the older Dominican Rite Mass, or do I need to seek faculties to do so? Since I’m a doctoral student specialising in the Trinitarian theology of St Thomas Aquinas, I would be glad to have opportunities to celebrate the older Dominican Rite Mass so as to contemplatively absorb what I’m learning.
That’s a good question, to which I know not the answer. I think there are well-informed Dominicans around here who could help.
My instinct is to underscore that, though you are a tertiary, you are a diocesan priest of the Latin Church and that your Rite is the Roman Rite. That’s your mainstay.
I suspect that, as a tertiary, you would be able to celebrate the Dominican Rite especially with Dominicans. Whether or not you can do it, as an option, as a diocesan, is unknown to me.
