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

Today is Pentecost Monday during the Octave of Pentecost.  It is also called Whit Monday, a reference to the white garments of the newly baptized.
We observe the Octave in the Traditional Roman calendar.  It was tragically, ridiculously, eliminated in the … Continue reading

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.
In most places Ascension Thursday has been transferred to Sunday, but not with malice.  The notion the bishops had was to expose more … Continue reading

WDTPRS 5th Sunday of Easter (2002MR) – eternity and sempiternity are different

Sunday’s Collect for the Ordinary Form was not in a previous edition of the Roman Missal. A precedent is found in the Sacramentarium Bergomense.
COLLECT:
Omnipotens sempiterne Deus,
semper in nobis paschale perfice sacramentum
ut, quos sacro baptismate dignatus es renovare,
sub tuae protectionis auxilio … Continue reading

WDTPRS: 2nd Sunday after Easter (1962MR): devastation and rising

Let’s see what happened to today’s Collect in the 1962 Missale Romanum when it was ported over into the 1970MR.

fidelibus tuis sanctam concede laetitiam;
ut, quos perpetuae mortis eripuisti casibus,
gaudiis facias perfrui sempiternis.
With a … Continue reading
