About this blogger:
"Father Isaac Jogues was truly a martyr before God, rendering witness to Heaven and earth that he valued the Faith and the propagation of the gospel more highly than his own life, and losing it in the dangers into which, with full consciousness, he cast himself for Jesus Christ…" — Fr. Jerome Lalemant (writing in 1647)

The soul is distracted from that which is sung by a chant that is employed for the purpose of giving pleasure. But if the singer chant for the sake of devotion, he pays more attention to what he says, both because he lingers more thereon, and because, as Augustine remarks (Confess. x, 33), “each affection of our spirit, according to its variety, has its own appropriate measure in the voice, and singing, by some hidden correspondence wherewith it is stirred.” The same applies to the hearers, for even if some of them understand not what is sung, yet they understand why it is sung, namely, for God's glory: and this is enough to arouse their devotion.
— St. Thomas Aquinas

Liturgica Website Reprints "Rituale Romanum"
published 9 November 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

Y WAY OF the Orbis Catholicus blog, we hear that a reprint of the RITUALE ROMANUM is now available. This is being made possible by liturgica.net, which carefully reprints Latin liturgical books for the Extraordinary Form.

If you visit their website, you can see sample pages. They seem to be doing really high quality work, and here’s what they say about their latest production:

Many of its features, unique in liturgical publication today, will cause this Rituale Romanum to stand out as a liturgical book that indeed epitomizes the very best that can be produced in large quantities in our day. Together with our most important partners for the outer appearance of the Rituale – the printer and the bookbinder – we take pride in having overcome some major production difficulties.

Similar to what was done inside the Campion hymnal, they don’t just xerox copy the old wood cuts: rather, they digitize and enhance them.
