'...the dignity of a Bishop in his diocese...'Patricius, if it is the loss of this in the Roman church that concerns you, I think it's fairly safe to say that the particular boat in question has already sailed.
The pure irony is that the background picture is of a pre-1962 copy of the Missale Romanum.
Seems Fr. Hunwicke, whom you have praised numerous times on this blog, disagrees with you. How does that make you feel?
Michael, lamentably so.Rubricarius, I hadn't noticed that, but I presume it was something like ''Introitus'' rather than ''Antiphona ad Introitum'' which gave it away?Well ANDREW, I cannot speak for the erudite Fr Hunwicke, whose knowledge of Classics and Liturgy far exceed my own, and whose experience as a pastor of souls spans many times the length of my own years. But we may respectfully disagree with eachother. I respectfully disagree with my hero J.R.R Tolkien on one or two matters.
But Andrew you have referred to John Hunwicke as 'Vicar Hunwicke' - surely what he says can have no relevance for you?
