In the Bolletino yesterday, we read that Francis has made 10 December in the Novus Ordo an Optional Memorial (Memoria ad libitum) for Our Lady of Loreto.
The decree from the Congregation for Divine Worship is in the above-linked Bolletino in several languages, including Latin, which is indicated as the original language. Yeah… right.
Putting aside the Latin of the decree, there is a glaring mistake in the new Collect for the Memorial, which is to be inserted into liturgical books… mistake and all.
Can you find it? It slaps you in the face.
De Communi beatae Mariae Virginis
Deus, qui promíssa Pátribus adímplens
beátam Vírginem Maríam elegísti,
ut matrem fíeret Salvatóris,
concéde nobis illíus exémpla sectári,
cuius humílitas tibi plácuit,
et oboediéntia nobis prófuit.
Who are the yokels writing this stuff?
This must be the same team that screwed up the new Preface composed for the Novus Ordo Feast of St. Mary Magdalene. HERE
