“We must say it plainly: the Roman rite as we knew it exists no more. It has gone. Some walls of the structure have fallen, others have been altered—we can look at it as a ruin or as the partial foundation of a new building. Think back, if you remember it, to the Latin sung High Mass with Gregorian chant. Compare it with the modern post-Vatican II Mass. It is not only the words, but also the tunes and even certain actions that are different. In fact it is a different liturgy of the Mass.”
— Fr. Joseph Gelineau (1978)

GABC Propers Tool Revisited
published 30 December 2017 by Veronica Brandt

APPY CHRISTMAS! At this time of year any shortcuts can be welcome – especially here in the Southern Hemisphere where the summer heat adds to the tiredness.

Recently I had the opportunity to revisit Benjamin Bloomfield’s GABC Propers Tool. I’ve made a short screencast to show how you can prepare the propers and ordinaries interleaved ready for singers who may not be adept at finding their place in the regular books. Even with some explanation it still comes in at under 4 minutes.

This way is very quick and easy, though it doesn’t give you the translations like the Goupil Gradual does.

I hope you have a Happy New Year!

NB: PLENARY INDULGENCES for reciting the Te Deum on New Year’s Eve and the Veni Creator for New Year’s Day.
