The commentators need to be silent. Wow! Not good.

Agreed! Horrible!!' But using ordinariate missal!!!

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

Chanting proper Introit in traditional manner and far more sober than triumphal processional hymn! Wonderful English chant!

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

To bad word of welcome!

It is 20 minutes after 8:00, the Mass still hasn't begun and The cardinal hasn't stopped speaking. What a wreck!

Oh my. The hillbilly Deacon is too much. Leave it it to the Novus Ordo to complete destroy a perfectly nice liturgy.

Anglican patrimony with Texas twist

One of the worst masters of ceremonies I have ever seen.

One of the most ancient, important, beautiful chants of the Church is being sung and the priest commentating will not stop babbling.

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

The Elizabethan English especially for the Roman Canon is magnificent! The double genuflections at the consecrations wonderful! Wonderful hearing the cardinals praying the old English!
A genuflection after the Per Ipsum! The EF kissing of the altar!

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

Three-fold "lord I am not worthy" absolutely magnificent and ties into the threefold Lamb of God!

Versus populum Masses with a billion clerics standing about look way too overcrowded. If it were ad orientem, it would look more appealing, and, even better - let them all kneel (if they knelt during the Canon, I missed it, having begun to watch too late)!

Does the Ordinariate typically do Communion standing / in the hand, or is this meeting OF expectations?

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

I went to bed after the "Lord I am not worthy" but Anglicans do receive in the hand but using the early Church and thus correct method of doing so which is to form the throne with the hands to receive the Host and then to bring the palm to the mouth and receive and take with the Host any particle on the palm. In other words there is no picking up of the Host with the fingers.

Anglicans also receive from the Chalice as a norm. They normally kneel but may stand.

Yes, I agree there are way too many concelebrants crowded in the sanctuary and it clutters it. But an episcopal ordination is rare.

While I think the Ordinariate's new missal is superior to ours in format, calendar and the elevated Elizabethan English, I do find it wordy and the Protestant inclination to sing every verse of every hymn places the liturgy at the service of hymns rather than the other way around.
