  1. What is your opinion on receiving communion kneeling in the Novus Ordo?

    badwolfcomplex:

    Kneeling to receive is always an excellent idea (unless you are in an Eastern Catholic church.) I have a tag about it. My policy is always to kneel to receive in the Ordinary Form if I am physically able to do so.

    I have a very similar opinion about veiling. If we are veiling for the right reason—i.e. because Christ is present—then we should be veiling any time we are in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

    NB: Knelling and veiling should not be considered some sort of “iron clad rule.” Sometimes you just can’t kneel for physical reasons or other pressing concerns; sometimes you can’t veil for the same reason (e.g., not even infinity scarves are safe from the grabby hands of my five-month old.) In short, our focus should always be on Who are with, not who we are with. If we base our decisions, to the best our circumstances, on the reverence we believe is due to Him, and not on human considerations, then we’re doing good. 

    I know people have genuine, heartfelt doubts about “causing a stir” in the NO by doing something that nobody else is doing. Every time I have personally been a witness to such an instance, it was not the huge deal the person was afraid it was. I’m just saying we should critically examine our motives and the sources of our fears and then do what we really think to be right by God—and not let social pressure or mere cultural norms dictate our behavior. Reverence and piety are always an option, even if they’re “extraordinary.” 

  2. Víctimæ pascháli laudes
    immolent Christiáni

    Agnus redémit oves:
    Christus ínnocens Patri
    reconciliávit peccatóres.

    Mors et vita duéllo
    conflixére mirándo:
    dux vitæ mórtuus,
    regnat vivus.

    Dic nobis María,
    quid vidísti in via?

    Sepúlcrum Christi vivéntis,
    et gloriam vidi resurgéntis:

    Angélicos testes,
    sudárium, et vestes.

    Surréxit Christus spes mea:
    præcédet suos in Galilaéam.

    Scimus Christum surrexísse a mortuis vere:
    tu nobis, victor Rex, miserére.
    Amen. Allelúia!

…this is the best thing.Bald eagle fistbump. Holy shit.(Pretty sure that’s some sort of puppet or animatronic though.)

Maybe but then again I’ve seen birds do things like that in real life. Birds are smart.


Things I can imagine going down between the First and Third Persons of the  Holy Trinity, because Easter.

  4. Because he clung to me, I shall free him:
      I shall lift him up because he knows my name.
    He will call upon me and for my part, I will hear him:
      I am with him in his time of trouble.
    I shall rescue him and lead him to glory.
    I shall fill him with length of days
      and show him my salvation.
    Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
    As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
    World without end. Amen.

  6. Faithful Cross, above all other,
    one and only noble Tree.
    none in foliage, none in blossom,
    none in fruit thy peer may be.
    Sweet the wood and sweet the iron,
    and thy load, most sweet is he.
    Bend, O lofty Tree, thy branches,
    thy too rigid sinews bend;
    and awhile the stubborn harshness,
    which thy birth bestowed, suspend;
    and the limbs of heaven’s high Monarch
    gently on thine arms extend.
    Thou alone wast counted worthy
    this world’s ransom to sustain,
    that a shipwrecked race for ever
    might a port of refuge gain,
    with the sacred Blood anointed
    of the Lamb for sinners slain.

  7. Now the thirty years are ended
    which on earth he willed to see.
    Willingly he meets his passion,
    born to set his people free:
    on the cross the Lamb is lifted,
    there the sacrifice to be.
    There the nails and spear he suffers,
    vinegar and gall and reed.
    From his sacred body piercèd
    blood and water both proceed:
    precious flood, which all creation
    from the stain of sin hath freed.
