Liturgy Tidbits Which Tantalize

From Dr. Phil (not the jackass pop-shrink, silly!!) Blosser:

Rorate Caeli also offers, in a post entitled "For the Record - Schmitz: Motu proprio 'is ready'" (Marcy 30, 2007), some excerpts of Brian Mershon's report on a recent conference by Mgr. Michael Schmitz, United States Provincial of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest (ICRSS), ...

On aspects of the post-synodal exhortation:

...two specific encouragements — offering Mass ad orientem and using a Latin canon and Gregorian chant during the ordinaries of the Novus Ordo liturgy — may indeed be part of the post-Synod on the Eucharist document...

("Post-Synodal" refers to the wrapup letter from the Pope for the Synod on the Eucharist.)

Just putting those two toes into the water will have the same effect as dropping a couple of hot dogs into a pool full of piranhas. I can't wait to read the snippy-smarmy-liturgical-Gnostic response from the BCL types here.

I'll believe it (motu proprio) when I see it.

Novus ordo has now been construed to be so broad that anything can happen and does happen. Some parishes use part or all of the Latin mass. Some parishes which have good choirs or music directors are bringing back Gregorian Chant. An exciting time in parts of the hinderland. Most unoffficial and most welcome.

Tito, I'm with you...but I'd rather see it than NOT see it.
