Do you have good news for the elevation and edification of the readership? Let us know.
Here’s a piece of good news.
I had an email from the head of the Latin Liturgy Association in these USA. He sent me to a PDF of their recent newsletter, which I read with attention.
There’s a lot of good news in it.
Even though we are “connected” by the interwebs, etc., … are we? It seems to me that the sort of connections we can make today can also be alienating and atomizing. Hence, it was good to look over the newsletter from the LLA (which I haven’t seen for a long time – I would not be displeased to receive a hard copy). There are a lot of good things going on out there. When they are gathered together into one place, the impact is strong.
BTW… I noted the name of someone from my past life when I was studying Latin in Rome with Fr. Foster: NS of ND. If you see this, drop me a line.
That’s what I try to do with “Your Good News” and “Your Sunday Sermon Notes” posts.
At the end of the newsletter, I saw a prayer:
Orátio pro Missa Latíne Celebránda
O mundi Regnátor, qui te omni lingua hóminum angelorúmque laudári voluísti; tríbue, qu?sumus, ut étiam in diébus nostris, sacrifícium dilécti Fílii tui immaculátum assídue lingua Romána in oratóriis gentis nostrae omniúmque permúltis tibi offerátur a pópulo ad te toto corde convérso: per Christum Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
Cum licéntia Ordinárii, Baton Rouge, LA August 8, 1994
Prayer for the Celebration of the Mass in Latin
O Sovereign of the world, who have willed that you be praised in every language of men and of angels; grant we beseech you, that now too in our days, the unblemished sacrifice of your beloved Son may be incessantly offered to you in the language of the Romans in many churches of our land and of every land by a people turned to you with all their heart. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
