Rorate Caeli

The Lord, who makes peace within the borders of the Church

Qui pacem ponit fines Ecclesiae, frumenti adipe satiat nos Dominus: the Lord, who establishes peace within the borders of the Church, satisfies us with the finest of Wheat. 

May this Antiphon of Vespers for the Feast of Corpus Christi inspire all our readers to pray for peace and unity in the Church - the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic, and Roman Church (cf. Mystici Corporis Christi, 13).

A very happy Feast of Corpus Christi to all our readers: please send us your images, videos, and reports from your Traditional celebrations of the Most Holy Body of Christ anywhere in the world.

[And, from Te Igitur, images of Corpus Christi in destroyed Warsaw (1946), led by Card. Hlond.]

As an Eastern Catholic, it is my joy and privilege to pray for peace and unity in the Roman Church.

But remember that the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church is NOT entirely Roman.

There are Ukrainian, Melkite, Romanian, Maronite, Syriac, Chaldean, Coptic, Ethiopian, Armenian, and others who are just as Catholic, but are not Roman.

They ARE Roman, insofar as they are in communion and under the final authority of the Bishop of Rome. The Catholic Church is Roman.

They are NOT members of the LATIN Church, but they are certainly Roman (yes, unfortunately this has been toned down since the last Council, but it is not less true because of that - please, go argue with Pope Pius XII or the Fathers of the First Vatican Council, Const. de Fide Catholica, c. 1).

Thank you, NC, for your contribution in response to Jack. The Catholic Church is Roman, in all of its differing manifestations. By the way, reference to the Roman Church ought never to have been put away or diminished, as it has been. Yet it seems to be the Church herself that shook from Herself that true and loving characterization. Unfortunate, because to cease thinking of the Church as Roman is to cease seeking to align ourselves with Her as perfectly as we are able.

What are the two children in the third picture from Warsaw wearing, angels' wings and laurel around their heads? It is difficult to see since they are facing the Most Holy Sacrament...
