It’s been years. Years upon years since I last sang.Time takes a toll on the voice, and for so long, I was actually afraid to sing.

While perhaps not necessarily relevant to existing members of Juventutem Michigan, we believe that the following post will bring new visitors to our website in the holy week ahead – – if you’ve arrived here in just such a way, please consider reading these excellent articles on: Spy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday.The following is a list of Ash Wednesday Masses and Triduum liturgies (according to the 1970 Missal) in the Ann Arbor area as well as liturgies (according to the 1962 Missal) around southeast Michigan. (Another post may be drafted to cover the full state of Michigan, though it is more likely we’ll get around to this for Holy Week 2014).ChurchesSt
The Unfinished Liturgical Work of Benedict XVI Posted by Revd Fr Christopher Smith One of the things that I hoped against hope for during the pontificate of Benedict XVI was an encyclical on the liturgy marking the 50th anniversary of Sacrosanctum concilium. That will now never come to pass
SharebarMy old friend now-Archbishop Alex Sample, before his translation to Portland, issued a Pastoral Letter on Sacred Music for the Diocese of Marquette. It is called “Rejoice in the Lord” and it is a hit.First, remember his spectacular sermon about the older form of Holy Mass?

Half-naked Jesuit does Hindu dance around altar Posted on January 17th, 2013 by Paycheck in Catholic Liturgy Personally, I thought the ending was poorly done. But that’s just my opinion.Share this: This entry was posted on Thursday, January 17th, 2013 at 8:00 am and is filed under Catholic Liturgy
For many years now, I have “mined” the Holy Gospels, as given to us by the Church in the Sacred Liturgy, following the cycle of feasts and seasons, and found therein a rich sequence of Mystery-Events suited to meditation and contemplation in the sublime and simple prayer of the Rosary.Those who recite a third of the Rosary sometimes assign the various mysteries to particular days: joyful (Monday and Thursday), sorrowful (Tuesday and Friday), glorious (Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday).Where this system is rigidly adhere to, conflict can arise between the content of the mysteries and that of the Liturgy of the day: the recitation of the sorrowful mysteries on Christmas day, should it fall on a Friday. In cases such as this it can be reckoned that “the liturgical character of a given day takes precedence over the usual assignment of a mystery of the Rosary to a given day; the Rosary is such that, on particular days, it can appropriately substitute meditation on a mystery so as to harmonize this pious practice with the liturgical season”(242)
