  1. Regina cæli, lætare, alleluia:
    Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia,
    Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia,
    Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

    V. Gaude et lætare, Virgo Maria, alleluia.
    R. Quia surrexit Dominus vere, alleluia.

    Oremus. Deus, qui per resurrectionem Filii tui, Domini nostri Iesu Christi, mundum lætificare dignatus es: præsta, quæsumus, ut per eius Genitricem Virginem Mariam, perpetuæ capiamus gaudia vitæ.Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

  3. Happy Easter 🙂 x

  4. Our parish newsletter today contains (not surprisingly) a message about the resurrection but mentions only the resurrection of Jesus in the hearts of his apostles and disciples and in the hearts of believers to this day. No mention of the physical resurrection. I am becoming increasingly worried about this particular priest who is the local superior of an international order of priests and brothers. He is never directly heterodox but is leaving plenty of clues in his newsletter and homilies. One of his predecessors, who left to get married, assured us that there was no objection to women priests and that Catholics ‘overdo’ devotion to Our Lady and so offend Protestants. I am getting sick of this, the next nearest parish is even worse (apparently there confession is an optional extra for Catholics).

    • “He is never directly heterodox but is leaving plenty of clues in his newsletter and homilies”.

      Ah, a Vatican II priest then!

      I am sure if you asked him whether he means the Resurrection wasn’t physical he would deny it in order not to get in trouble. After which, he would continue to talk so that anyone – including himself – can understand his words as he pleases.


  5. Lepanto: It’s very Cranmerian, isn’t it? The first Protestant books of the church of England (I haven’t read them as they’re on the ‘Index’ but I’m moderately familiar with Michael Davies’ work on them) are apparently written in a very slippery style so that a Catholic understanding can be wrung from them but the obvious understanding is heterodox.

    • It might have to do that even Protestant a’ la Cranmer were far more “Catholic” in their outlook than modern ones.

      Even in J.S. Bach’s time, the Protestant mass was very similar to the Catholic one. IN fact, neither Bach nor Luther would be able to recognise modern Lutherans as “Lutherans” (or “Christians”) in any sense of the word as they knew it.
