MONSIGNOR JAMES MORONEY'S OF VOX CLARA LECTURES TO OUR SABBATICAL PROGRAM HERE IN ROMA (PRESS THE TOPIC OF MARRIAGE BELOW FOR A PDF GIVING PORTIONS OF THE REVISED ENGLISH AND ORDER OF THE RITE OF MARRIAGE RECENTLY APPROVED BY THE USCCB AND AWAITING ROMA'S RUBBER STAMP!)

Monsignor James Moroney, rector of Saint John Seminary in Boston gave us several days of lectures on the liturgy. You can find links to his presentations with cool images by press HERE. 

Dr. Janet Hunt is the music director and organist at this seminary and was the same at The Church of the Most Holy Trinity in Augusta when I was pastor. She has a passion for chant in all its forms as well as polyphony and wonderful Anglican chant too.

Mgrs. Moroney is a part of Vox Clara and was in Rome for meetings finishing their work on retranslating the Rite of Marriage and the Exorcism translation.

He was a crucial part in bringing us the fabulous and most wonderful new English translation of the Mass for which the Praytell blog heaped globs of kudos upon him!

You might enjoy looking at the marriage presentation with some examples of what is coming in the link above.

The image below is our chapel here, small but quite lovely. IF YOU PRESS ON THE TITLE OF THE LECTURE BELOW IT SHOULD BRING YOU TO THE PDF FOR IT WITHOUT GOING TO THE LINK ABOVE. BELOW DID NOT POST PROPERLY FOR SOME REASON:

ICTE Lectures draw to a close...

It was a great joy being with the Priests of ICTE these past couple of days.  As our time together draws to a close, here are PDFs of all my lectures.

Inclusive language? Give me a break…Now, there's some heavy duty theology...

Is there any room on that "altar" to say Mass? Was there a sudden marble shortage?

Looks like one of those Wal Mart plastic tables you can buy for 9.99. Probably represents the "new liturgy" or the Pope's theological interest...

There's nothing unusual or inappropriate about having small altars in small chapels.

And that altar looks to me to be made of marble or some kind of stone, which is what the Church expects.

It is a beautiful, but small, exquisite marble altar and fits the rather small space of this small chapel.

It is an "altarette."
