Rorate Caeli

Slowly but surely

Brazilian blog Salvem a Liturgia reports that a Benedictine Monastery in Pouso Alegre (state of Minas Gerais) now hosts a monthly Traditional Mass - and is reintroducing Traditional readings, in Latin, in the Divine Office. The Prior himself, Dom Bento Albertin, O.S.B., is responsible for this slow improvement in the monastery's liturgy. The post includes pictures of the last TLM, on Laetare Sunday, as well as a report by Dom Bento.

God bless Dom Bento and his monastery!

I am sure that by reintroducing traditional readings in Latin is a big improvment in recovering one of the greatest treasures of the Catholic Church.

Brazil will greatly benefit from this Benedictine monastery. Here in Los Angeles, where every-Sunday Latin Mass is permitted in only two peripheral locations (Alhambra and Ventura), we receive wonderful assistance from a Norbertine monastery that sends out priests to offer Latin Mass. May these Brazilian monks be just as beneficial. Deo Gratias!

Every time we attend Latin Mass we restore a bit of the Catholic Faith. Seems to me this is what we need to do now.

The processional cross, the carpet and the iconography are definitely from neocatechumenal origin...

The Pope this week divided the ecclesiastical province of Porto Alegre,elevating no less than three of its suffragan sees to metropolitan status and reallocating others as their suffragans.

Are there any policy implications to this?

Louis,

You do a confusion betweeen POUSO Alegre, a small citiy at Minas Gerais State, and PORTO Alegre, the capital of Rio Grande do Sul State.
