  1. I started with “How did we get here?” Msgr. Sherman seems to skip over quite a bit. I wonder who he thinks all the people were who were consulted on the ICEL 2008 translation. He presents ICEL 2008 as the final work and ignores everything after that.

    Nice church that they took the pictures from.

    1. “Become One Body One Spirit In Christ” the big glitzy all-singing all-dancing catechetical resource put out by Bishop Roche’s “Leeds Group” (aka The Serene and Kindly Guys) – back in the days when people from ICEL and Vox Clara still spoke to each other – did the same thing.

      In it, Bruce Harbert tells, bare-faced to camera, the “history” of the getting of this translation, and to hear him speak, you would swear the years 1975-2001 passed in an instant!

      As Professor Rindfleisch told us all over lunch at Da Roberto in the Borgo Pio last time we were all in Rome, “Vatever zey like and vatever zey don’t like, ze vun zing zey hate most is letting ze priests and people see how good vuz ze 1998 Sacramentary!”

      1. I thought Colonel Klink was doubling as the Cardinal Archbishop of a very Windy City. Hahaha.

  2. The faithful are genuinely touched by the provision of eucharistic catechesis; it is one good aspect this otherwise so unhappy situation.

  3. In the segment, The Process of Translating the Roman Missal, look at the frame they put up as Msgr Sherman says, “The United States has a rather sizable representation on Vox Clara.”

    Hahahaha: why yes, yes we do!

    Well done, film editors!

  4. I just got this email from someone who, like me, knows ALL the players and – as they say – where all the bodies are buried. It doesn’t make for comfortable reading, but it’s 100% true.

    (Let’s see how long it takes Rita to be inundated with complaints about it):

    What bastards they are – and incompetent to boot …. I have something I’d love to post on PT under that youtube series, namely the truth: that, as they did in the old ICEL, Moroney, Folsom, Dennis McManus (now advisor to Rocco Palmo’s buddy Hardy Har Har Dolan of NYC), Driscoll – all thought they’d be the NEW ICEL.

    They were apparently so incompetent even the bishops noticed, and England’s Bruce Harbert was brought in. So as part of their ongoing revenge, they became the REAL Vox Clara, via their buddies, the equally despicable Cuthbert Johnson and Anthony Ward.

    The bishops at that meeting – Pell, Pendergast, Alfie “Get Me to Baton Rouge while New Orleans drowns” Hughes and the assorted extras – are just a magisterial facade and charade.

    And now the incompetence of the whole ship of fools is on display as the celebrated Missale Moronicum (in the appropriately named “Regal” edition!). Makes you wanna just throw up.

    But boy does that sordid tale need to be told – and the Grail psalms saga too. We should get it all out there and drive those trads like Helen Hull Hitchcock & her buddy Fr Z and all those drama-queen posters on PT and Mr Tucker over at Chant Cafe through the wall with the truth that their precious revised translation is the fruit of vengeance and betrayal – as well as inaccurate and illiterate.

    All things betray thee
    Who betrayest Me

      1. Jeffrey, you should have seen it before I watered it down!!!
        Send me your email address and I’ll happily send you the original!!!

      2. There are NO uncharitable barbs. Compared with the horror of the truth of the situation, anything you might consider “uncharitable” pales into insignificance.

      3. Compared with the horror of the truth of the situation, anything you might consider “uncharitable” pales into insignificance.

        Ah, Chris, this is where we all fall short of the glory of God! We fall into the trap of comparing things to each other, rather than to the demanding standard of our Lord. Calling someone a “bastard” might be uncharitable in that situation, we say, but not in this situation.

        But God doesn’t grade on a curve (a link you won’t click on, but I invite others too), and St. Paul and St. James urge us to remove rough speech from our mouths (not by SAYING it, of course!) and to gain mastery over our tongues. In fact, this admonition is all the more important during Lent, this season of fasting, almsgiving, and prayer, for as we recently heard from the prophet Isaiah, the fast that God desires is a fast from malicious speech, among other things. (cf. Isa 58:9)*

        Sorry for the “sermon”. Just thought it was worth saying, but that’s my conceit, isn’t it? I’m just as much in need of reform and repentance as the next one.

        * I’m not saying you are falsely accusing anyone.

      4. Poppycock, Jeffrey. If you want some examples of rough speech, read some of the psalms. I can recommend Psalm 58. These are are part of the inspired word of God.

        This one is against immoral religious leaders.

        O God, break the teeth in their mouths,
        tear out the fangs of these wild beasts, O Lord!

        Let them vanish like water that runs away;
        let them wither like grass that is trodden under foot:

        Let them be like the snail that dissolves into slime;
        like a woman’s miscarriage that never sees the sun

        (Psalm 58:7-9)

      5. The contents of March 14, 2011 – 10:29 am are not inspired Scripture.

        But if you wish to justify calling people “bastards” (and so on) by appealing to Scripture, then I will not go any further than to appeal Scripture (St. Paul and St. James) again. I leave it at that.

        Tough crowd!

      6. They are not inspired scripture. You are right on that score, Jeffrey. But they have a number of things in common with the inspired scripture quoted:

        1.They refer to immoral religious leaders.

        2 They articulate an anger in the face of corrupt religious leadership.

        3.They dispell any illusion that God is on the side of unjust religious authority.

        4. They are an alternative to the silence of collusion with dishonest religious leadership.

        5. They call for a response.

    1. Chris, I’d like to see the unabridged original. Where can I get your email address? Thank you for posting!

  5. In times like this, I find turning to the Psalter is helpful, no matter who has watered it down: 7:16-17, 10:5-6, and perhaps the presaging of globetrotting tours of 73:9. It might be that the proud and arrogant would consider the Psalmist uncharitable, but we’ve been singing these texts for a long time, and we’ll continue to sing them millennia after these guys have fallen into their graves.

    It wasn’t a sermon, dear Jeffrey, just an answer to my question – and you’re wrong.

    You’ve been quick to correct my use of language, and I wonder what you’ve done (other than comment and blog) about those who’ve misused the language and thereby disfigured the language of our prayer?

    Or am I an easier target than these powerful ecclesiastics?

  7. “St. Paul and St. James urge us to remove rough speech from our mouths (not by SAYING it, of course!) and to gain mastery over our tongues. ” Pinyan

    Literally chuckled when reading this!

    I agree with the basic points it accompanies.

    If all of us could somehow make our facts, theories, and logical arguments clearly without expressing the hurt we have felt elsewhere and elsewhen than in these postings, we would all have less to read and less temptation to write likewise.

    Confiteor … mea culpa …

  8. Oh, I just love the muscular Christianity of the writer, Who Betrayest Me. It’s so like the Lord’s when provoked.

    Nothing does more to invigorate the blood than a good ecclesiastical brawl, Mr. Pinyan.

    1. “Nothing does more to invigorate the blood than a good ecclesiastical brawl” Just love it!!

      So, now, when do we cleanse the temple of these harlots?

      1. Bastards!!! Harlots!!! PT is evincing strong language this evening. Must be the controversial topics.
