COMMEMORATION OF SAINT MATTHEW (Septemberf 21)
This Sunday’s Feast of St. Matthew (Sept. 21 in the Proper of Saints) is superseded by the Mass of the 15th Sunday after Pentecost. However, the Evangelist is commemorated in the Sunday Mass by inclusion of the Collect, Secret, and Postcommunion for the Mass of St. Matthew following those of the Mass of the 15th Sunday (thus two of each this Sunday).
Post-SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM STANDING OF THE TRADITIONAL MASS
On the occasion of this past Sunday’s seventh anniversary of the implementation of the apostolic letter Summorum Pontificum, Prof. Peter Kwasniewski reflected on support and opposition to the traditional Latin Mass today.
“In the post-Summorum world, the ancient Roman Rite can no longer be considered forbidden, dubious, marginal, or obsolete. It enjoys equal rights of citizenship with the Novus Ordo: two forms of the Roman Rite—one called Ordinary because most recently promulgated and more widely used, the other called Extraordinary, the usus antiquior, deserving respect for its venerable use—with each able to be freely celebrated by any priest of the Roman Rite, no special permission needed. One would think that, as a gesture of reconciliation at the heart of the Church, the two forms would be flourishing side by side, with Catholics everywhere privileged to experience both of them offered reverently and beautifully.” (Click here to continue reading.)
