Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

A Nod of the Miter Goes To . . .

January 3rd, 2011, Promulgated by Gen

. . . Bishop Matthew Clark. (Oh, come on now. We’ve got to give credit where it’s due.)

Regarding the implementation of the Third Edition of the Roman Missal, the Bishop declared, “this is a moment of Grace for the Church.” That’s a beautiful way to describe what the new, accurate translation is and will be for the average layman/laywoman/layperson/laything in the pews. He goes on to say, “It would give me enormous peace to know that one of my last and best works as your Bishop was to foster a deeper understanding¬† of the centrality¬† of the Eucharist in our local Church.”

Below is a video released today by the Diocese, which discusses many of the details regarding the implementation of the new translation.

    Well, at least they’re not opposing its implementation like a certain soon-to-retire Bishop of Erie, PA. Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if Bp. Trautman (errrr Fishperson)had his retirement accepted before the implementation?

    Wow, no alb-covered women on the altar anywhere in that video! Now to get rid of those ghastly wine glasses at the 1:26 mark and replace them with proper precious metal vessels… (and what is “Crafting the Art of Liturgy” at 3:12?)

    I was surprised to see that it was a very good video, and that the message was excellent. As Bishop Clark was speaking I was nodding my head instead of shaking it for once.

    One little insy-winsy problem: They show various video clips of DoR Masses, but three of the clips are from churches that have closed over the past 5 years (St. Anthony, St. Bridget, and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel) and another church which has since destroyed its sanctuary by installing a blue screen and a rounded altar (St. Monica).

    Bishop Clark looks pretty old and worn out to me in this video. I don’t get it. Priests have been allowed to routinely substitute their own words in DoR liturgies for years and now Bishop Clark is concerned with accuracy? The end must be near.
