How Do You Pronounce "Deo volente?"

This has been popping up a great deal lately. I invite those who have questions like this to first put the term in the "blog search engine" in the upper left corner. They would have come across this entry from July . Once again, several pronunciations are possible depending upon "classical" or "liturgical" Latin differences. I pronounce the name, Day'-OH VO-Len'-Tay (although the liturgical Latin could render the second name, VO-Len'-Tee).

Visitors ask..Latin Mass Readings or Readings for the Latin Mass or Daily Latin Mass Readings

This is one I have answered before on several occasions, but the Google "search string" is totally critical for locating the answer. To my knowledge, there is NO site online that has the daily LATIN readings for the TLM. It just doesn't exist as yet. However, a good Deacon has a site with the English Translations of the TLM for most days. Today, October 30th, and yesterday were Ferial Days, so only information on the saint was provided. However, here is an example of the readings for the Mass for Saints Simon and Jude for earlier this week . Note that you can subscribe to the RSS output for this site, or use the widget he provides. For English readers, it is a marvelous apostolate!

Afternoon Roundup - Tuesday, October 28th, 2008 - Sts. Simon and Jude

The New Liturgical Movement has an extremely important post relating to Summorum Pontificum, and to the continuity of the Usus Antiquior with the Latin Liturgy. The post is translated from Italian and is entitled, " Response of the Cardinal President of the Pontifical Commission “Ecclesia Dei” to certain questions ." Shawn Tribe posted this and it is a MUST READ! Note the important passage stating again that NO INDULT is necessary! A. Evidently not. This is because, with the publication of the Motu Proprio “Summorum Pontificum,” the regulations for the use of the Missal of 1962, previously given in “Quattuor abhinc annos” and thereafter in the Motu Proprio of the Servant of God, John Paul II “Ecclesia Dei adflicta” have become obsolete. In fact, “Summorum Pontificum” itself, even from Art.1, explicitly affirms that “the conditions of the use of this Missal, regulated in the previous documents “Quattuor abhinc annos” and “Ecclesia Dei”, have been replaced. The Motu Propr

I am delighted that Fr. Zuhlsdorf found time to "revisit" his prior post on the Mount .

The photos are fantastic, and the Church is as beautiful as I remember it. I hope the good Father visitors had the time to visit the Shrine of Lourdes on the Hill.

AmericanPapist: Breaking: US Bishops set the record straight in today's statement

Thomas Peters of American Papist is announcing this breaking story.

Please read this "must read" story! The clarification, here posted in PDF format , was co-signed by Justin Cardinal Rigali and Bishop Murphy of Rockville Centre, NY.

Father John Corapi, SOLT - A Call for a Rosary Novena

This appears on Fr. Corapi's website and was in his last weekly email . I urge all to consider his request! No other issue, not all other issues taken together, can constitute a proportionate reason for voting for candidates that intend to preserve and defend this holocaust of innocent human life that is abortion. I strongly urge every one of you to make a Novena and pray the Rosary to Our Lady of Victory between October 27th and Election Day, November 4th. Pray that God’s will be done and the most innocent and utterly vulnerable of our brothers and sisters will be protected from this barbaric and grossly sinful blight on society that is abortion. No woman, and no man, has the right to choose to murder an innocent human being. Amen!

The Witherspoon Institute: Public Discourse - "Little Murders" by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput

The Witherspoon Institute on its website " Public Discourse - Ethics, Law and the Common Good " features an excellent address given by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver . Here is just a bit of what His Excellency had to say: The abortion conflict has never simply been about repealing Roe v. Wade . And the many pro-lifers I know live a much deeper kind of discipleship than ''single issue'' politics. But they do understand that the cornerstone of Catholic social teaching is protecting human life from conception to natural death. They do understand that every other human right depends on the right to life. They did not and do not and will not give up - and they won't be lied to. So I think that people who claim that the abortion struggle is ''lost'' as a matter of law, or that supporting an outspoken defender of legal abortion is somehow ''prolife,'' are not just wrong; they're betraying the witness of every pers

Regional Mass News and Special Events - Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos to Celebrate TLM at the National Shrine in D.C.

Update 2, 9:08 PM, 10/08/08: I just received the email below. The initial "outline" of this event is indeed accurate. The only thing remaining is whether Cardinal Castrillon-Hoyos will accept. Thanks to John for his email! When asking my source about details on the Hoyos Mass at the National Shrine, he said that Cardinal Hoyos has indeed been invited to the Shrine to offer Holy Mass . The Archdiocese of Washington approved the invitation, and the date Cardinal Hoyos was asked to say (or sing!) Mass was December 13th . His Eminence has not (yet?) accepted the invitation, so the entire event remains up in the air . I wish I had better news, but I thought a follow-up was in order. Update : I've made several attempts to verify this information, but to no avail. As much as I want to believe this , it is possible that this was more rumor than fact. I apologize if this is the case. If I learn that this special event WILL take place, I will p

WDTPRS >> From a priest: I must “protect myself from persecution and ridicule” over the TLM

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf carries a post this evening from a young priest who is suffering terribly over his love for the Traditional Latin Mass. The post is heartbreaking. Please read it if you can at this link . I pray for the Holy Father, for bishops and for priests every day. They need our prayers . A post such as this is just one manifestation of what suffering may occur in being an " alter Christus ."
