This Sunday’s Collect survived the knives of the liturgical experts and was inserted into the 1970 Missale Romanum on the 15th Sunday of Ordinary Time. The redactors who glued the Novus Ordo together, however, removed the word iustitiae, thus returning it to the … Continue reading

In response Piccarda utters one of the greatest phrases ever penned and or recited (l. 85): Continue reading
