A missal that has been prepared for five hundred years

The First Sunday of Advent will see the introduction of a new missal in the Catholic Church, one that has been in preparation for five hundred years.
Known as Divine Worship: The Missalit has been handsomely published by the Catholic Truth Society to serve the communities and parishes of the personal ordinariates —structures similar to dioceses, established to provide a home in the Catholic Church for those from the Anglican tradition.

Wake up!

Wake up! is the cry that our persecuted brothers and sisters from the East, especially from Syria and Iraq, make to the West.

HM Television shows you the life of an authentic Christian faith, full of the cross, forgiveness, strength and hope; and, at the same time, a faith that is awake to the reality of persecution, not only in the East, but also gradually in the West.

Let us join forces to wake up a society that needs to open its eyes to a new and shocking witness of faith.Don’t remain silent before the suffering of our brothers and sisters, and show that you too are a “Nazarene.”

You can find the complete interviews of those who intervene in this clip and many others in the series, “In the Footsteps of the Nazarene,” by HM Television.

Ordinariate Missal arrives!

A very exciting moment - today I received a copy of the brand new Ordinariate Missal called "Divine Worship" and authorised by the Holy See for use in the Ordinariates from Advent Sunday.

Here are some sneek peeks!

I am so pleased we have a "WHITSUN WEEK". I cannot think why the Whitsun octave was removed from the Calendar for the Novus Ordo. But we have it back now!

And lots of Ember days through the year too!
