CofE Wedding • The Ordinariate may have just gained two new members.
Archbishop Charles Chaput
The ultimate goal of our laws is to make us morally good. Our laws should help us accord with the design God has written into human nature. Thus, Maritain writes, civil law “should always maintain a general orientation toward virtuous life, and make the common behavior tend, at each level, to the full accomplishment of moral law.”—Law and Morality in Public Discourse: How Christians Can Rebuild Our Culture
Ministry & Life of Priests
Therefore, the priest, while placing at the service of the Eucharistic celebration all his talents to make it come alive in the participation of the faithful, must abide by the rite stipulated in the liturgical books approved by the competent authority, without adding, removing or changing anything at all297. Thus his celebrating truly becomes a celebration of and with the Church: he does not do “something of his own”, but is with the Church in dialogue with God. This also promotes adequate active participation on the part of the faithful in the sacred liturgy: “The ars celebrandi is the best way to ensure the actuosa participatio. The ars celebrandi is the fruit of faithful adherence to the liturgical norms in all their richness; indeed, for two thousand years this way of celebrating has sustained the faith life of all believers, called to take part in the celebration as the People of God, a royal priesthood, a holy nation” (cf. 1P 2:4-5.9) 298.—Directory for the Ministry and Life of Priests, New Edition (2013), p. 95.

Hebrew, Latin & Greek
(A)nother reason to make sure we have some Latin (and Greek and Hebrew) in the Mass: If we say/chant the Kyrie, if we say/sing Alleluia, and if we say/chant Agnus Dei, we will in the Mass connect to the titulus, the sign Pilate posted on the Cross, “The King of the Jews” written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin so that all would understand it.—bsjy at Liturgy Guy blog.
