“In the 17th century came the crushing blow which destroyed the beauty of all Breviary hymns. Pope Urban VIII (d. 1644) was a Humanist. In a fatal moment he saw that the hymns do not all conform to the rules of classical prosody.”
— Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

“Et Cum Spiritu Tuo” in the 1961 Fulton Sheen Missal
published 7 April 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

JUST HOW WAS the phrase “Et cum spíritu tuo” translated in the 1961 Fulton J. Sheen Missal?

See for yourself:

587 Fulton Sheen


The primary translator, Fr. Philip Caraman, would seem to agree with Fr. Joseph Andreas Jungmann about this phrase. However, their translation lacks the important connection to St. Paul’s epistles…but that’s another story.

Incidentally, you can download the complete Fulton J. Missal here.

And here’s something from 24 June 1961:
