Anglican Use Mass DVD in production

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 1:34 pm

I just saw on Dappled Things that a Catholic parish that celebrates the Anglican Use rite is making a DVD.  Check it out and watch a trailer!  This provides more access to the richness of Catholic liturgy, but also could cause another “want” among some Catholics.  I can hear it now… “We want Anglican use rite!  Why can’t our parish have this?”  Well, maybe there will be an indult here or there.  As St. Paul said, (Phil. 1:18)  “The important thing is that, in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached.  And because of this I rejoice.” (NIV)

Cloning?

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 12:43 pm

Yikes.  Is this really true?  It might be a good idea to pray a Chaplet of Divine Mercy or two, since I don’t see God being pleased with this.

Earliest recorded sound still around

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 10:26 am

I must admit a certain interest in the history of recorded sound, and this page plays for you one of the earliest extant recordings around.  It was recorded October 5, 1888, and in it, Sir Arthur Sullivan is rather prophetic on the impact of recorded sound.  Does this make me a “young fogey”?

Young Fogeys and youth conferences

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 5:47 pm

Fr. Andrew Greeley recently wrote about divisions between older and younger priests in an article called “Young Fogeys.”  He is apparently calling such youngsters as myself this (those crazy kids these days…).  The “young fogeys,” however, tend to be very comfortable with such events as Franciscan University youth conferences (watch the latest promo video–I couldn’t get the Windows Media Player versions to work, but the VideoCD version downloaded ok), and if there is anything “fogey” about such things, then the definition of “fogey” needs to be examined more closely.

EWTN on Sirius Satellite Radio

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 5:57 pm

This is sort of big, but I don’t think we are going to subscribe to it.  It will make a difference for those who already subscribe to such a service because they will run into some Catholic programming now.

School is underway

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 7:54 am

The semester doesn’t look overwhelming at this point, but it has only started.  Many a cheer has gone up about not having any papers to write for Christology class, and it is Fr. Judd’s first time teaching Christology at a Masters level.  Other classes are with familiar teachers.

Anglican Use liturgy

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 8:32 pm

An interesting entry on the Anglican Use liturgy from Andy Kosmowski.  My curiosity about litrugy is activated.  I would certainly like to attend such a liturgy someday.

Sister Servants

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 10:20 pm

There’s a young religious community of women founded in Argentina that is starting to grow–and that includes here in the U.S.  It was founded in 1988.  The community is the Sister Servants of the Lord and of the Virgin of Matera.  Their website is currently only in Spanish, but even if you know little Spanish, it is quite easy to navigate through.

New GIRM makes a difference

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 6:01 pm

I’m on vacation, and I’ve been attending Masses in the diocese of Green Bay.  Some changes from the new GIRM have been implemented, and I like what I see!  Various “innovations” at parishes are starting to be quelled (or at least lessened).  The book the Bishops’ Conference released that deals with some particularly American innovations (Introduction to the Order of the Mass) has yet to get its fifteen minutes of fame, but if it were followed, it would help even more.

Catholic Jukebox

Filed under: default — Fr. John Larson @ 9:39 am

While I knew that EWTN had a Catholic Jukebox website, I didn’t realize that episodes of the show Catholic Jukebox are available in the Audio Library.  Just do a search for Catholic+Jukebox.
