My strong suggestion for anyone who really wants to see and to KNOW what the TLM is about is to purchase this:
The Immemorial Tridentine Mass DVD
narrated by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
The Immemorial Tridentine Mass narrated by Fulton Sheen is a true treasure of our Catholic heritage. Hear Archbishop Sheen explain the Traditional Mass in this magnificent live 1940 recording of a sung High Easter Mass in Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Chicago. A beautifully filmed presentation of the traditional Easter Mass for the whole family!
You can find other versions; I have several. However, this one is worth every nickel. With gas going for $4 a gallon, buy 5 gallons of "spiritual enlightenment!" And, the narrator may be a saint in due course...Deus Vult!

The Third Order or Lay Dominicans consists of Chapters and this link shows you where to find a local Chapter of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph (Eastern U.S.). Region 5 constitutes D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The Pope Pius V Pro-Chapter mentioned once before has a website here. Here is a link to the Dominican Liturgy. I am not certain this is celebrated at the Priory routinely. Fr. Thompson, O.P., is on the blog team at The New Liturgical Movement and publicizes when a special Mass will be celebrated. His link is located in the Right Menu.
Hope this helps!

The truth is, only those involved (the Holy Father who received the letter, Cardinal Castrillon who has probably been in negotiations with Bishop Fellay and Bishop Fellay himself) know what is going on totally and how things might progress.
I continue to pray for a resolution. This appeared to be a great gesture by His Holiness and I pray it bears fruit!
To my knowledge, there is no site that has all the Latin (plus English translations) of the Propers for Sundays and the daily TLM online that accords with the Missal of Pope John XXIII. The closest thing one can find is the Tridentine Latin Rite Missal Project which is the Herculean task of one man! Even that will need to be revised due to the Motu Proprio and its requirements. Some of the postings are out of date which explains why some events of Holy Week weren't posted here.
An alternative is a good missal; Baronius and several other companies now sell them. They are usually called "Motu Proprio" editions (I believe EWTN now has one on its webpage).
The final option, and it is a good one, is the Traditional Latin Mass Propers in English. This is the daily work of a Catholic Deacon who has even created a widget with the readings. Here is the Mass for today, the Feast of St. Irenaeus. He has all the English readings for the Mass. Give it a try!

Visitors ask...TLM Materials for the Laity, Sung Latin Masses, TLM at Saint James in Charles Town, TLM on the Eastern Shore
One question appearing relates to materials for the laity to learn more about the Latin Mass (or TLM). I can think of no better starting point then the SanctaMissa.org site of the St. John Cantius Society. It is a treasure trove and yes, there are DVDs available. See other sites within the right menu. There are a number of other sites such as the EWTN Latin Mass Resources site.
A second question concerns "Sung Masses." A Missa Cantata is not a common thing in this area but the Novus Ordo Latin Mass frequently is sung. See the right menu or the Frequently Asked Questions and note especially the Masses at St. Matthew's Cathedral in D.C. and the various Masses in northern Virginia. I believe more of them are sung on a regular basis (see Saint Benedict in Chesapeake, VA).
As for the TLM at Saint James the Greater in Charles Town, WV and the situation on the Eastern Shore, this is what I know. The Pastor of Saint James would like to begin a regular TLM but is not prepared to do it himself at this time. Therefore, this will remain an "occasional Mass" until the situation is remedied.
As for the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the Diocese of Wilmington still is responsible for the TLM schedule. This does not fall within the AD of Baltimore so this is up to the Ordinary of Wilmington. I get posts asking about a TLM in Salisbury, MD but there isn't one. The Masses in Dover and Wilmington are the only one of which I am aware.
The metropolitan archbishop is entitled to wear the pallium only within the territory of his province. The Pope alone wears it everywhere as a sign of his universal jurisdiction. Incidentally, the pallium worn by Pope Benedict XVI is now different from the pallium he confers on Sunday. His pallium is similar to the ancient, longer and broader style seen in mosaics of the early Church.The story on the pallium is a beautiful one and I urge you to read it all. I can assure His Excellency that he will be in my own prayers this Sunday as well. I also congratulate him as he assumes the mantle of the "Premier See" of the Archdiocese of Baltimore during her 200th Anniversary year as her Fifteenth Ordinary. Ad multos annos!
Gratefully, I am accompanied by more than 100 friends from Baltimore and from among the faithful representing my prior places of ministry. I pray it will be a holy pilgrimage for all who take part.
What a graphic reminder of the unity that we all enjoy with the bishop of Rome, successor of St. Peter and head of the College of Bishops. Intense will my prayer be that day for all in our Archdiocese and in our suffragan dioceses.
Read the story here.
Bartholomew I and the Holy Father will deliver the homily, recite the profession of faith and impart the final blessing. The Pontiff will concelebrate with the new Catholic metropolitan archbishops, upon whom he will impose the pallium.
Among the 43 archbishops receiving palliums are: Most Rev. Frederick Edwin O'Brien, archbishop of Baltimore; Most Rev. Thomas John Rhodes, archbishop of Mobile; Most Rev. John Clayton Nienstedt, archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis; Most Rev. Anthony Mancini, archbishop of Halifax, Canada; Most Rev. William Martin Currie, archbishop of Saint John's, Newfoundland, Canada.
O God, our common Father who knows us better than ourselves,
pour graces through the Holy Spirit into the hearts of the members of the SSPX
to bend what is rigid and warm what is cold,
that in union with the Vicar of Christ,
to whom Your Son our Lord gave His own authority to bind and to loose
and whom He gave as a gift to the Church as a visible point of unity,
we may together in ecclesial charity strive in grace and zeal to renew
Your people in our Holy Catholic Church.

It is an interesting story nonetheless in its scope, and puts into full view the concupiscence and folly of all of us men. As His Holiness infers in the final paragraph, God, is a patient God; the Son will still sort the "wheat from the chaff."
WDTPRS: Countdown: accord between Holy See and SSPX and Neo-Catechumenals must adhere to the Roman Rite
The history of Maryland has been amply documented, here, here and in the Maryland State Archives. The Maryland State flag is the only flag in the Nation to bear a "bottony" as an ornament atop the flagstaff. The State is referred to as "The Old Line State" and the "Free State" (indicating its "freedom from a State-proscribed religion").
Maryland got its name from Henrietta Maria. She was the daughter of King Henry IV of France and Marie de Médici of Italy. In 1625, Henrietta Maria married King Charles I and became Queen of England. King Charles I's choice to make Henrietta Maria his wife was controversial because she and her family were Roman Catholics rather than members of the Church of England.
Queen Henrietta Maria was unpopular with many English people and members of Parliament because she assisted English Catholics like the Calverts. The Calverts chose to name their new province in North American, Mary-land, (“Terra Mariae”) in the queen's honor.
Henrietta Maria's life was difficult due to the English Civil Wars that occurred during her husband's reign. She had to flee England while her husband was on trial for treason against his nation. She went to the Netherlands to raise money and soldiers to support King Charles I.

I was in a discussion with a good Protestant friend and was asked "how do Catholics interpret Scripture?" I could have gone off on the "senses" of Scripture (an excellent book by Jimmy Akin, I should say), but decided to quote the Catechism definition. I went here to this spot, typed in "scripture interpretation" and retrieved a number of good matches including number 111. I then clicked "enter CCC at this point," and received this answer:
III. THE HOLY SPIRIT, INTERPRETER OF SCRIPTURE
109 - 119.
I was then able to tell my friend that this is what the Catholic Church teaches about interpreting Scripture; the answer is poignant and completely in line with Scripture, the Magisterium and the Sacred Tradition of our Church.
Please visit. This is one of my "gems" for you.

I presume the individual was not asking about the University in South Bend, IN which we all "Cheer, cheer for old...". That has been americanized to "Noter Dame" where the "a" in Dame is a long and hard "a". Some do pronounce the "Notre" as "Nut-rah" realizing its French roots.
Here is the pronounciation as given by someone knowledgeable in French. In France, the Cathedral is pronounced as follows:
There are plenty of examples where a mispronunciation of a foreign word or phrase has become standard - Notre Dame, for instance. French speakers would pronounce it “no-truh dahm”, but in this country it is and always will be “noh-ter daym”. No doubt the ears of Francophones are offended every time those words are uttered, but it’s become a fixture.Found it here... Been there too... Amazing!

- WDTPRS >> Bp. Rivest of Chicoutimi: I’m in charge here, not Benedict XVI - no TLM! (Fr. Zuhlsdorf sets the record straight; his new server is up and running)
Someone asked "how to pronounce Maryland?" Frankly, it depends! I have lived here a long time and have heard about 40 different pronunciations!
Here is the official one from the Merriam Webster Online Dictionary. The woman does a sterling job with "ˈmer-ə-lənd". However, I've heard "Merlin" (as in the magician from King Arthur's Court), "Marilyn" (with the "d" dropped as in the name, Marilyn Monroe), and "Myrrhland" (as in Gold, Frankincense and .... )! It depends upon where in the state you were born, I guess! And, it is a small state! The most common is probably "merrill-end" (as in the name of the stock brokerage company with no seeming linkage between the "l" and the "and"). That's my 2 cents anyway.
The Latin word "Jubilate" is linked here. It is from the Vulgate and is used in the Introit of the Third Sunday after Easter. I would use this pronunciation: "yoo-buh-LAH-tey." However, that gets into differences in Liturgical and Classical Latin. It is also used in the new song book of that name and refers to "shout to God with joy."
Dominus, fortitudo plebis suae, et protector salutarium Christi sui est: salvum fac populum tuum, Domine, et benedic hereditati tuae, et rege eos usque in saeculum. -- Ad te, Domine, clamabo, Deus meus, ne sileas a me: nequando taceas a me, et assimilabor descendentibus in lacum. V.: Gloria Patri . . . -- Dominus, fortitudo . . .Traditional Latin Rite Missal Project
The Lord is the strength of His people, and the protector of the salvation of His anointed: save, O Lord, Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, and rule them for ever. -- (Ps. 27. 1). Unto Thee will I cry, O Lord: O my God, be not Thou silent to me, lest if Thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

Father's style of speech is powerful and he clearly loves being a priest. He says that he prepares for every hour of speaking by several hours of prayer before the Holy Eucharist. It is evident.
The YouTube below is a shortened version of his original audiotape on his own conversion. If you are traveling this summer, and if you want to listen to some quality Catholic tapes, check his talks available on SOLT. You might even sign up for his newsletter. I did.... Father's John's speaking schedule has slowed down. We need to hear him now on tapes and other forms of multimedia.

There is a great website that is worth its weight in gold. It is here: "Deo est Gloria," Directory of Catholic Religious Life Communities. It links to each U.S. state or internationally if you visit the home page.
Someone has been searching for Carmelite Friars in California. So, I click California and this shows up. Notice as I go down the list, the Religious Carmelites are for Women. However, in San Jose, I find this: Discalced Carmelite Friars, Province of St. Joseph, P.O. Box 3420, San Jose, CA 95156. The Friars have a website and here it is.
This is a great way to find what you seek. It lists any number of Orders and can be a great help. I hope my friend in California will find the Monastery, Friary or Abbey that he/she seeks.
The Latin Mass Society of England and Wales has asked RORATE CAELI to post the links here to the "official documents" that the Society wishes to make available to the public. [I suspect that this is because the Society has been inundated for more information (even this little blog got a lot of traffic from the U.K. seeking information).]
I am posting this link because it really is a link to the major and definitive repository.
