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)

“I still haven’t made up my mind whether I shall publish it all. Some people are so humorless, so uncharitable, and so absurdly wrong-headed, that one would probably do far better to relax and enjoy life than worry oneself to death trying to instruct or entertain a public which will only despise one’s efforts, or at least feel no gratitude for them. Most readers know nothing about canon law. Many regard it with contempt and find everything heavy going that isn’t completely lowbrow. Some are so grimly serious that they disapprove of all humor. Others come to different conclusions every time they stand up or sit down. They seize upon your publications, as a wrestler seizes upon his opponent’s hair, and use them to drag you down, while they themselves remain quite invulnerable, because their barren pates are completely bald, so there’s nothing for you to get hold of.”
— St. Thomas More to Peter Gilles, 1516

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.
