The Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite: Sacredness in Continuity

The Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite: Sacredness in Continuity


The promulgation of the new translation of the Roman Missal of 1970 invites us to reflect further on the "hermeneutic of continuity" articulated by Pope Benedict XVI, and the importance of this being demonstrated consistently in the celebration of the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

Beginning Saturday, 12 May (at 6pm), a weekly Vigil Mass in the Ordinary Form will be offered at St Aloysius' Church, 233 Balaclava Rd, Caulfield, which will try to exemplify "sacredness in continuity". The Mass will be celebrated in English, "ad orientem" at the High Altar, and with both the Propers and Ordinary of the Mass being sung. Following the example of Pope Benedict XVI, communicants will be invited to receive Holy Communion on the tongue, and kneeling at the Altar rails.
