“I grew up listening to Lessons & Carols from Cambridge and that was Advent-Christmas for me. Then I moved to Rome and discovered Rorate Masses, the Novena of the Immaculate Conception with the Tota Pulchra, the Christmas Novena, the O Antiphons, the Aspiciens, the Rorate Coeli, the Alma Redemptoris Mater: that's Advent for me now. I am glad to see seminarians all over the United States doing Lessons & Carols, but are they learning our ancient Roman traditions alongside a 20th-century Anglican one?”
— Rev. Christopher Smith

Major Media Outlet Re: “Ad Orientem”

208 Robert Cardinal Sarah Y FRIEND emailed me a URL link to an article by Ms. Claire Chretien. Published by a major media outlet, the article deals with recent statements by Robert Cardinal Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, with regard to “ad orientem” in the Ordinary Form.

Specifically, Ms. Chretien cites several Watershed articles, including this one (which really caught fire online, being “cut & pasted” to many Catholic blogs). What I appreciate is that she properly credits our website.

Here’s an excerpt:
