About the time when "ceremonies would be shortened of that last part of capital importance" -- are you referring to the Last Gospel at the end of mass? Not the disappearance of chant traditions?It's difficult to find recordings at all of those chants. Over time a lot of traditions have been terminated.
Thank you for John's proemium. Catherine Emmerick foresaw a time of great tribulation when ceremonies would be shortened of that last part of capital importance... Looks like she prophesied correctly.
When I'm in Milan, every Sunday at the Ambrosian V.O. I both get the Gospel and pray Sancte Michael Archangele...I've been able to hear the Last Gospel (at the end of mass) only about twelve times. But where I am, we are experiencing a resurgence of the prayer to St. Michael at the end of mass.
I don't know which is scarier -- the number of words of this that I understood, on first hearing, or the number of sentences I didn't understand.Huc sunt pauca sed matura verba pronuntiatione ecclesiastica lecta/dicta de rebus teologiae et de quibusdam aliis.
I don't think there's actually a rule in the CIC about that. As long as we understand each other. But I'm curious What of that guy's pronunciation sounds strange to you? Because if it's the Rs the thing is reciprocal and both pronunciations are acceptable IMHO .But, I would like to know -- is this the Roman pronunciation that the Church recommends?
