And so am having to watch the recording of Holy Mass celebrated at Saint-Eugène earlier, for the 16th Sunday post Pentecosten (Introibo), rather than the livestream. The feast of the Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary was commemorated on today's date (so far as I can tell) until Pius XII fussed with the Kalendarium in 1954. Canon Guelfucci is the celebrant and the Te Deum was sung at the end of Mass, so I'm guessing that this is in fact his 'final Mass', for the present, anyway. As the post at the Schola Sainte-Cécile's site makes clear; sometimes I am more dense than others. Tsk; only now am I remembering that I didn't put the Pauline Rite Gospel lesson on yesterday's page.
Hmm. Trying to follow M. Durodié's announcements before the sermon. 'Something's up' with Abbé Grodziski. And there is a pastoral letter of Mons Aupetit [from the 3rd of this month, La Croix says], evidently. Pater Thomas SJ is present in choir. Canon Guelfucci's sermon hasn't mentioned any of this.
This morning's lesson from the Gospel of Saint Luke, 14,1-11.
In illo témpore: Cum intráret Jesus in domum cujúsdam príncipis pharisæórum sábbato manducáre panem, et ipsi observábant eum. Et ecce, homo quidam hydrópicus erat ante illum. Et respóndens Jesus dixit ad legisperítos et pharisǽos, dicens: Si licet sábbato curáre? At illi tacuérunt. Ipse vero apprehénsum sanávit eum ac dimísit. Et respóndens ad illos, dixit: Cujus vestrum ásinus aut bos in púteum cadet, et non contínuo éxtrahet illum die sábbati? Et non póterant ad hæc respóndere illi. Dicebat autem et ad invitátos parábolam, inténdens, quómodo primos accúbitus elígerent, dicens ad illos: Cum invitátus fúeris ad núptias, non discúmbas in primo loco, ne forte honorátior te sit invitátus ab illo, et véniens is, qui te et illum vocávit, dicat tibi: Da huic locum: et tunc incípias cum rubóre novíssimum locum tenére. Sed cum vocátus fúeris, vade, recúmbe in novíssimo loco: ut, cum vénerit, qui te invitávit, dicat tibi: Amíce, ascénde supérius. Tunc erit tibi glória coram simul discumbéntibus: quia omnis, qui se exáltat, humiliábitur: et qui se humíliat, exaltábitur.
The Schola sang a version of the Vexilla Regis prodeunt at the entry of the clergy, which may have been a nod to Tuesday's feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. They are singing the first verses of a Te Deum by Jean-Baptiste Lully at the incensation of the altar at the Offertory. I forget I can already add the videorecording here.
Post Tertiam. Am listening to the livestream of Vespers from Saint-Eugène; M. Durodié, le nouveau curé, is celebrant (officiant, in French; I guess I don't really know what the idiomatic use is in English). Still hatless. He is to be installed as pastor on 3 October by Mons Thibault Verny, auxiliary bishop of Paris. I'm glad to see confirmation that they will stream Holy Mass on Tuesday, the feast of the Exaltation of the Most Holy Cross.
While I'm probably not going to link to Father Zuhlsdorf's commentary on the Sunday lessons each week, it is a welcome feature of 'the new' OnePeterFive.
Have been thinking about 'the doctors of YouTube' (e.g. Michael Voris, Taylor Marshall, the fellow at Restoring the Faith et alii). I don't watch any of it but am happy to presume that their intentions are good. The first reason I don't watch 'em is because I refuse to spend the time-- I can read a (hypothetical, I think) transcript of Dr Marshall's ten minutes of rhetoric in one. The more substantial reason is that their self-presentation seems to me to be 'political', in some sense; not having watched, I can't be more precise than that. My take, based on allusions made by others, is that there is too much of Trump partisanship, too much commentary on the plague vaccination nonsense, too much time given to certain ecclesiastical persons and speculations. Entirely possible of course that I have 'them' all wrong! But I'm not going to begin watching their productions, in any event.
It is also the feast of Saint Ebontius (12th century), of Saint Tewdrig (7th century), and of Saint Reverentius (4th century).V. Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. R. Deo grátias.
