Vatican: Easter 2012 Stamp

Vatican: Easter 2012 Stamp Vatican’s Philatelic and Numismatic Office will mark the celebration of Easter with a special stamp issue highlighting the principal feast when the Church celebrates our Lord Jesus Christ’s victory over death. Featured this year is a miniature of the Resurrection with Christ blessing. The work is from a page in the Codices Urbinates Latini 112 and is typical of the classical iconographic tradition. The manuscript, also known as the Breviary of Matthias Corvinus, king of Hungary and bibliophile who lived from 1443 to 1490, has two columns of elaborate Gothic decoration, the work of Florentine artists of the school of Ghirlandaio and Attavante degli Attavanti. Of particular interest are the many pages covered entirely with gold, shiny miniatures accompanied with festoons, garlands of flowers and fruit, putti and colorful birds. The important, illuminated stories are...

New Mass Lectionary & ESV: Some official clarification

New Mass Lectionary & ESV: Some official clarification   Given the time we have devoted recently to the proposed new Lectionary based on the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible, including a brief comparison of an ESV sample text with other translations, and given the lively and interesting comments it has elicited, I made so bold as to email directly to the Most Reverend Mark Coleridge, the Archbishop of Canberra-Goulburn and Chairman of the International Commission for the Preparation of an English Language Lectionary (ICPEL), seeking some authoritative clarification on some of the questions raised in our discussion.   With admirable speed for a busy diocesan bishop, he very kindly sent a concise but richly informative reply which answers the questions I asked him, and also one I failed to ask him! Apart from chopping the head and the tail of the email which...

Lock up the Hosts

Lock up the Hosts The Holy Eucharist An escalating wave of sacrilegious thefts of wafers strikes across Italy. The Archbishop of Monreale encourages parishes to lock up the Eucharist, with a green light from the Holy See Giacomo Galeazzi Vatican City The image of an empty tabernacle and the hosts being kept locked up elsewhere seems almost heretical. But in truth, keeping the Eucharist safe is well worth breaking away from the norm. There is nothing more sacred in the Church than the consecrated Host. Yet for months now, these violations and abuses have been taking place, one right after the other: from the two Muslims in Sondrio who received the host in their hands from a priest – only to put it in their pockets, to a barrage of sacrilegious thefts throughout Italy. It has become bad enough...

Oremus – The Collects of the Roman Missal

Oremus  Let us Pray The Collects of the Roman Missal     This new publication contains the Collects in Latin and in the English translation from the new Third edition of The Roman Missal.   Price £20.00 + P&P. The Concluding Prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours for Lauds and Vespers is generally the same as the Collect of the Mass.  With the implementation of the revised English translation of the Roman Missal, those praying the Hours in English are left with alternative versions of the same prayer: the translation as found in the Roman Missal, and the translation as it appears in the Liturgy of the Hours. Eventually, a new English translation of the Liturgy of the Hours will be published, and is reported as being already in the process…    Gracewing Ltd 2 Southern Avenue, Leominster, Herefordshire,...
