Welcome to my Blog! I read where there was a need for English Propers for the Traditional (1962 Missale Romanum - Tridentine) Latin Mass, so I will try posting the prayers and readings each day, if they are available. I will also post some other writings regarding the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the greatest Act of Worship we can offer to Almighty God and the closest we can get to Heaven!
(The translation of the Psalms and the brief introductory comments on the Psalms of this Little Office of the Blessed Virgin are taken largly from: The Psalms and Canticles by George O'Neill, S.J. [Bruce Publishing Co. 1937.] The late Father O'Neill's work has long been out of print.)
INTRODUCTION "St. Thomas More repeated his favorite Psalm, the Miserere, on the scaffold;
St. John Fisher wrote a treatise on the Penitential Psalms, and he, too, died repeating verse after verse from Psalms. So, almost at the same time, did St. Francis Xavier. So did St. Theresa; So did St. Francis de Sales. St. Vincent de Paul escaped from imprisonment in Africa by means of a Psalm."
