Southern Orders

BOMBSHELL UPDATE! I finally got around to watching the Liturgy of the Word and you guessed it, a major restoration that I have not seen at a papal Mass, The Old Testament Lesson, the Responsorial Psalm and the Epistle were read/sung from the Epistle side of the altar but at a separate smaller lectern and the Gospel was read at the Gospel side of the Altar at a larger ambo! What does it mean? Is this yet another reform of the reform? Stay tuned.


I hope so, the Laity using the Ambo is wrong, it should be reserved for the Priest, just another diluting of the authority of the Priest

Epistle lecterns were removed two pastors ago, haven’t gotten to the Benedictine Altar arrangement yet. Sigh

To paraphrase Twain, 10 years late in Cincinnati.
