WDTPRS: Collect – Sts. Peter & Paul (2002MR)

The Collect for the Novus Ordo the the Mass of the Solemnity of Sts Peter and Paul is in part inspired by that of the parallel prayer in the 1962 Missale Romanum.  However, it seems also to be a new creation, though … Continue reading

WDTPRS: Pentecost Tuesday – the protection of our hearts

According to the older, traditional Roman calendar, today is Tuesday in the Octave of Pentecost.
The octave of Pentecost was lamentably killed off by the cutters and snippers of the Consilium in the post-Conciliar reform of the Roman liturgy.
On this day … Continue reading

WDTPRS: Pentecost Monday – bondage to freedom, anxiety to peace

WDTPRS Sunday after Ascension (’62): We have not been terrified by chains!

Today’s prayer survived the Consilium’s scissor and gluepot ministrations to live in the 2002 Missale Romanum as the alternative Collect for Mass on the day of Ascension. Rather, the Collect rose to new life in the 2002 edition. It wasn’t … Continue reading

WDTPRS Ascension – Our humanity, “raised beyond the heights of archangels”

On my planet, this coming Sunday is the 7th Sunday after Easter, Ascension Thursday having fallen on Thursday.
