9 October – Feast of St. John Henry Newman. We can celebrate him using the Traditional Latin Mass: his LATIN Collect

The other day Fr. Hunwicke reminded me at his fine blog that 9 October is the Feast of St. John Henry Newman.

Keep in mind that legislation came from the newest incarnation of the old Pontifical Commission “Ecclesia Dei“, now absorbed into the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, that we can celebrate liturgically in the Traditional Latin Mass the saints who were canonized after 1962, provided that something on the calendar doesn’t outweigh it.  That document is called Cum sanctissima.

9 October will be in the regular calendar the Feast of St. John Leonardi.  But we can opt to celebrate St. John Henry Newman.

For you priests out there who may to do same, here is my post about the LATIN Collect for St. John Henry Newman: HERE

Note the reference to “kindly light”!

    If someone wanted to celebrate the Office of Saint John Henry Newman in the Extraordinary Form do you know what could be used for Lectio iii at Matins?
