CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE OF DETROIT: THE DANGER OF MAKING EXCUSES FOR SIN

oldstmary.4

Making excuses is a part of life. For some, excuses are practically a way of life, becoming so common that it’s almost tempting to call them a routine. Everybody is guilty of it, but for Catholics, the habit of making excuses can be dangerous. Your Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit would like you to know why.

When a person experiences hardships in life, it can begin to shape the tone for who that person is to become. Hardships have the potential to help us grow, but on the other hand, they can also turn into an excuse NOT to grow. Thus, there are people who blame their ill behavior and sinful ways on a bad childhood, a mean teacher, a slave-driving boss, an indifferent spouse, etc.Read more on this article.http://bit.ly/2olDMsB

THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NOVUS ORDO AND TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS

2.15.16-4

For the last forty years, most Catholics are already familiar with the Novus Ordo, also known as the New Order. This version is the successor of its more traditional method of worshipping. Simply known as the Latin Mass, Tridentine Latin Mass is a method that has been practiced since July 14, 1570. Pope St. Pius V through the apostolic constitution Quo Primum, any mass celebrated in Latin is coined as “Latin Mass”.

Language

One of the most obvious difference of the Novus Ordo and Latin Mass is the language used to celebrate the mass. The latter is celebrated in Latin while Novus Ordo uses the common language of the country where the mass is held. However, the missal that Pope Paul VI released was also in Latin and assumed that the Mass would continue to be in Latin.Read more on this article. http://bit.ly/2oiWiT4

LATIN MASS & HISTORY: SEEING THE BEAUTY OF THE TRIDENTINE TRADITION

1.1.16-4

A visit to any Catholic archdiocese is not complete without hearing what is known as the Tridentine Mass. While some people might find the said mass quite boring and confusing, there is actually more to it than meets the eye.

What Is A Tridentine Mass?

Simply put, a Tridentine mass is what is also known as the Latin mass. The said mass got its official name from the Council of Trent, the party responsible for the some of the changes done by the Catholic Church when it comes to religious rites. One of the most notable change would be the priest facing the people during the rites instead of everyone facing the altar.

As the name implies, a Tridentine or Latin Mass typically makes use of the Latin language throughout the whole rite. This does not, however, mean that you need to have an intimate knowledge of the said language as they usually give out missals that can guide you. Read more on this article. http://bit.ly/2oQRAyX

CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE: TECHNOLOGY TO REACH PARISHIONERS AND THE LAITY

12.1.15-4

Roman Catholics once got all of their parish-related news by way of their parish’s weekly bulletin and their archdiocesan newspaper. These print sources alerted them to Mass schedule changes, anniversaries, deaths and funeral notices, baptisms, and other relevant faith-based details.

If they missed Mass or lost their newspaper in the mail, people had no way of knowing what was going on in their parish. Parishes and the Catholic archdiocese of Detroit, however, continue to embrace technology to reach parishioners and alert the laity to the goings-on of the Church and the parish itself. Read more on this article. http://bit.ly/2oQyrxm
