It is actually the presentation of the fourth typical edition – so the translation process will begin again….
Perhaps the Holy Father had requested copy of a more recently printed Missale Romanum Editio iuxta typicam tertiam in which the illustrations in the 2002 printing are replaced with actual Catholic art. Currently, Cardinal Arinze would have been able to take advantage of the MTF’s Christmas sale price of $400 (regularly $600), as would any local parish member wanting to equip his pastor for more authentic OF usage. (Last Christmas I attended an ad orientem Latin Novus Ordo Mass celebrated using this newly printed Missale Romanum.)
Actually, it is a slightly corrected version of the third edition which was printed a few months ago. Fr. Z. reported about it. I have not seen it yet. It is said that it is a bit smaller than the last one.
“Cardinal Arinze would have been able to take advantage of the MTF’s Christmas sale price of $400 (regularly $600), as would any local parish member wanting to equip his pastor for more authentic OF usage.”
This reminds me of something…
Could we hope that just maybe the Holy Father has improved on the “art” in the Missal? If he is going to change the “Kiss of Peace” location in the Mass maybe he could take care of the art work at the same time. Even as a server I was always struck when the Canon began and the Crucifixion realistically portrayed was there to be seen. Even if you didn’t understand Latin you knew this was IMPORTANT.
It just dawned on me from my last post above. To be able to see that image you had to be behind the priest. Facing the Lord in the same direction as the priest does have much value. This is said inspite of my lengthy defense of facing in either direction as noted on an earlier posting by Father Z.
Larry: I sure hope the art in this edition is better!
The images in the first version were worthy of any mom’s refrigerator.
Cardinal Arinze is out of office soon, right?
Like in a week or so.
Yes, Happy Retirement. Perhaps a successor could have a sacramental or liturgical degree….perhaps?
Pardon me Padre Michael,
Personally I want to know where any degree is from and who were the instructors. Most of the unmitigated non-sense that has gone on in the Church these past forty years is directly related to so called “experts” flaunting degrees from so called reputable institutions. These paragons of educational mal practice. No I think I prefer men like Card. Arinze who understand a stupid idea when they see it and are not afraid to slap it down. Had he not been at the helm of this Congregation you would likely be celebrating Mass with a feminist approved Eucharistic Prayer and celebrating in an empty church because every Catholic would have moved to the Eastern Rite. Yes I do have a Degree and yes educatin of the right type is essential. But degrees are granted for Truth.
