A couple of pages from A Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture

TLM Propers

I made this webpage that extracts the propers for the Traditional Latin Mass of the day. The propers are extracted from Divinum Officium.

How to deal with WYD hecklers

Yesterday, American Papist posted some pictures of people taunting pilgrims at World Youth Day.

When this happens, I think a good way to fight back would be for someone to lead everybody in shouting down the hecklers with a good ol' Litany of the Saints. We should be praying this prayer more anyway.

Collect (opening prayer) for daily Mass

If you are looking for the Collect (opening prayer) for today's mass, it seems that there is only one page on the web that shows it daily:

The Collect is packed with profound theology. Fr. Z often analyzes the Collect of the day. It will get even better with the corrected translation coming out in Advent 2011. If you are praying the breviary, you can refer to the above site to get the new collects from the corrected translation (at least I hope that the site will be showing the corrected translation).

Update: This webpage is actually pretty neat. It contains brief commentary on the readings from the ordinary and extraordinary forms of Mass, and information on the saint of the day. Sort of like Magnificat.

How to pay attention when saying the Our Father

I read somewhere about a good way to pay attention while praying the Our Father. It's to identify, every time you say it, the 7 points in it - 3 petitions about God, and 4 petitions about man. Try it!
