Please, Someone Invent Flying Cars (Or Something)

This has almost nothing to do with the Church or Tradition. It’s simply me taking an opportunity to complain more or less publicly about the difficulty and danger, leading to great frustration, of driving on certain Interstate highways and sharing that space with the big trucks. Don’t get me wrong: I love my food and … Continue reading Please, Someone Invent Flying Cars (Or Something)

Remind You of Anyone?

In the seventh Lectio in today’s (9/3/21) Divine Office of Matins, (Divino Afflatu version, available online at DivinumOfficium.com), for the Feast of Pope St. Pius X, there is this little gem from a homily of St. Augustine, discussing John 21:15-17: “Those who have this purpose in feeding the flock of Christ, that they may have … Continue reading Remind You of Anyone?

REPOST: Ad Mariæ Gloriam: A Trope for Our Lady

From the invaluable Canticum Salomonis blog, some fascinating scholarship about the Roman liturgy. The real one. 😉

Canticum Salomonis

Gloria in excelsis Deo. Et in terra pax hominibus bonæ voluntatis. Laudamus te. Benedicimus te. Adoramus te. Glorificamus te. Gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam. Domine Deus, Rex cœlestis, Deus Pater omnipotens. Domine Fili unigenite, Jesu Christe. Spiritus et alme orphanorum Paraclite.Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius Patris.

French nuns record thousands of hours of Gregorian chant for new app

J-P Mauro – published on 03/02/21

The Neumz app compiles every Catholic chant of the 3-year liturgical calender.

A community of Benedictine nuns from France are using their God-given talents to spread their love of Gregorian chant. Since 2019, they have been recording every plainchant of the liturgical calendar and making them accessible on a brand new app, Neumz. More than just a music streaming service, Neumz offers invaluable educational elements to learn the holy chants and gain a deeper understanding of the Mass.

It’s no small order to record every chant in the Catholic songbook, as the liturgical calendar rotates on a three-year cycle. This means that the Neumz project, started in 2019, will not be complete until 2022. When finished, they expect to have over 7,000 hours of Gregorian…

None of This Should Surprise Any Catholic with a Modicum of Faith and at Least One Functioning Brain Cell

My good online friend (whom I’ve not yet actually met in person), the Timman, posted this excellent list from off-guardian.org today. I pass it on for your consideration.

Saint Louis Catholic

But it is helpful to see when others see it:

“Here are Ten Things We Have Learned During the Covid Coup.

1 Our political system is hopelessly corrupt. Virtually all politicians are hopelessly corrupt. No political party can be trusted. They all can be, and have been, bought.

*

2 Democracy is a sham. It has been a sham for a very long time. There will never be any real democracy when money and power amount to the same thing.

*

3 The system will stop at nothing to hold on to its power and, if possible, increase its levels of control and exploitation. It has no scruples. No lie is too outrageous, no hypocrisy too nauseating, no human sacrifice too great.

*

4 So-called radical movements are usually nothing of the sort. From whatever direction they claim to attack the system, they are just pretending to do so…

REBLOG: Second City Cop Addresses Chicago | Chicago Contrarian

Reposting on my little secret corner of the Web as well, for the same reason. Thanks for yours!

Head Noises

Reposting in full to prevent disappearance.

Two months. We could regale you with stories about what we’ve been doing the past sixty days, but rest assured, you’d be bored pretty darn quick. Suffice it to say we’ve been busy. Some good, some bad, some truly sad, but busy. Life goes on until it doesn’t.

We’ll get to the question everyone is asking shortly.

In the meantime, how about that Groot? Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, Groot goes out, makes things infinitely worse, and then blames…the Police!

Two more suicides while we’re in limbo – nothing from the Groot and worse, a canned e-mail from Brownie. Did you know that after the suicide in 019, not a single member of the Command Staff showed up at Roll Calls for at least three days? Including the District Commander. But they care. Really. They tell us so…

Phony Catholics Need Our Prayers

I really never wanted this meager little blog to become political, although events over the past year have made it more and more difficult to avoid. Admittedly, I have allowed myself to descend into politically-oriented commentary on a few occasions, where there seemed to be a clear intersection between matters of traditional Catholicism and contemporary … Continue reading Phony Catholics Need Our Prayers
