Latin course launches on Duolingo

From The Catholic Herald:

Online language learning platform Duolingo has launched a new course for people who want to learn Latin.

The course, which launched at midday on Wednesday, already has several thousand people signed up, the company said. It is free to use and teaches the language through “bitesize lessons” that can be “taken at any time, wherever you are.”

“Ad orientem” worship: help against clericalism

From Fr Z’s blog:

For a moment let’s consider the negative sort of clericalism that is part of the The Present Crisis. There is a good kind of clericalism, in a healthy clerical identity. Let’s admit there is a negative clericalism. Surely it rose, in its present form, with constant focus on the priest who is forced by versus populum celebration to become the center of attention. The older form of Holy Mass kept the priest under tight control and made sure that he, as a person, wasn’t the focus.

Versus populum turning of Mass creates an expectation for the priest to perform and to become the reference point, who hectors (with the help of amplification) into a
“self-enclosed circle” as Joseph Ratzinger describes, but with the priest at the center, not so much as alter Christus but as “Just Call Me Bob”, who just happens to dress up in robes and sit facing the people in a finer chair than Caesar ever had.

Card. Sarah: You want to rebuild the Church? Then we must get on our knees!

Card. Robert Sarah on The Catholic World Report:

We will not rediscover an understanding of the dignity of the human person unless we recognize the transcendence of God. Man is only great and most noble when he falls on his knees before God. The great man is humble and the humble man is on his knees!

My friends, if we sometimes despair in the face of the powers of this world, if we sometimes lay down our arms before the powers of this world, remember that no one has the power to take away your freedom to kneel! If impious priests abuse their authority and brutalize you to prevent you from kneeling to receive Holy Communion, do not lose your calm and serenity before the Eucharistic Lord. Do not resist them, but rather pray for these priests whose behavior blasphemes and profanes him whom they hold in their hands. Try to imitate the humility of God and let your heart, your will, your intelligence, your self-love and your whole interior being kneel. It is God’s exclusive domain. A man on his knees is more powerful than the world! He is an unshakable rampart against the atheism and folly of men. A man on his knees makes Satan tremble in all his pride!

All of you who, to the eyes of men, are without power and influence, but who know how to kneel before God, have no fear of those who want to intimidate you! Your mission is great. It is to “prevent the world from destroying itself”!

(Translation by Zachary Thomas)

Ein Mensch auf den Knien ist mächtiger als die Welt

Kard. Robert Sarah auf kath.net:

Ein großer Mensch ist demütig, und ein demütiger Mensch kniet sich nieder.
Meine Freunde, wenn wir auch manchmal im Angesicht der Mächtigen in dieser Welt verzagen, wenn wir manchmal vor ihnen die Waffen strecken, erinnert euch daran, dass euch niemand die Freiheit rauben kann niederzuknien.

Wenn ungläubige Priester ihre Autorität missbrauchen und euch brutal davon abhalten, kniend die Heilige Kommunion zu empfangen, verliert nicht die Ruhe und innere Gelassenheit vor dem eucharistischen Herrn. Leistet ihnen keinen Widerstand, sondern betet für die Priester, deren Verhalten Ihn, den sie in ihren Händen halten, läs­tert und profaniert. Versucht die Demut Gottes nachzuahmen und geht in eurem Herzen, eurem Willen, eurem Verstand, in eurer Selbstachtung, ja in eurem ganzen Inneren auf die Knie. Das ist ja der Gott vorbehaltene Bereich.

Ein Mensch auf den Knien ist mächtiger als die Welt! Er ist ein unerschütterbarer Schutzwall gegen die Gottlosigkeit und den Wahnwitz der Menschen. Ein Mensch auf den Knien lässt Satan in all seinem Stolz erzittern!

Card. Sarah: “Volete rinnovare la Chiesa? Allora dobbiamo inginocchiarci!”

Dal blog di Sabino Paciolla:

Non riusciremo a riscoprire una comprensione della dignità della persona se non riconosciamo la sublimità di Dio. Solo allora l’uomo è grande e particolarmente nobile, quando cade in ginocchio davanti a Dio. Un grande uomo è umile, e un uomo umile si inginocchia.

Amici miei, anche se a volte ci disperiamo alla presenza dei potenti di questo mondo, se a volte deponiamo le armi davanti a loro, ricordate che nessuno può rubarvi la vostra libertà di inginocchiarvi.

Quando sacerdoti increduli abusano della loro autorità e vi impediscono brutalmente di inginocchiarvi a ricevere la Santa Comunione, non perdete la vostra pace e la serenità interiore davanti al Signore Eucaristico. Non opponete loro resistenza, ma pregate per i sacerdoti, la cui condotta bestemmia e profana Colui che tengono in mano. Cercate di imitare l’umiltà di Dio e mettetevi in ginocchio nel vostro cuore, nella vostra volontà, nella vostra mente, nel rispetto di voi stessi, insomma in tutto il vostro essere interiore. Questa è l’area riservata a Dio.

Un uomo in ginocchio è più potente del mondo! È un muro di protezione incrollabile contro l’empietà e la follia degli uomini. Un uomo in ginocchio fa tremare satana in tutto il suo orgoglio!

Card. Robert Sarah

Dominica XXI “per annum” – 25 Aug 2019

Ant. ad introitum Cf. Ps 85, 1-3
Inclína, Dómine, aurem tuam ad me, et exáudi me.
Salvum fac servum tuum, Deus meus, sperántem in te.
Miserére mihi, Dómine, quóniam ad te clamávi tota die.

Collecta
Deus, qui fidélium mentes uníus éfficis voluntátis,
da pópulis tuis id amáre quod prǽcipis,
id desideráre quod promíttis,
ut, inter mundánas varietátes,
ibi nostra fixa sint corda, ubi vera sunt gáudia.
Per Dóminum.

Super oblata
Qui una semel hóstia, Dómine,
adoptiónis tibi pópulum acquisísti,
unitátis et pacis in Ecclésia tua
propítius nobis dona concédas.
Per Christum.

Ant. ad communionem Cf. Ps 103, 13-15
De fructu óperum tuórum, Dómine, satiábitur terra,
ut edúcas panem de terra, et vinum lætíficet cor hóminis.
Vel: Io 6, 55
Qui mandúcat meam carnem et bibit meum sánguinem,
habet vitam ætérnam, dicit Dóminus;
et ego resuscitábo eum in novíssimo die.

Post communionem
Plenum, quǽsumus, Dómine,
in nobis remédium tuæ miseratiónis operáre,
ac tales nos esse pérfice propítius et sic fovéri,
ut tibi in ómnibus placére valeámus.
Per Christum.
