Traditionis Custodes and the Dominican Rite

I have been asked by friars and non-friars about what the papal motu proprio of Pope Francis issued on July 16, Traditionis Custodes, means for the those celebrating the Dominican Rite Mass privately or publicly. As document speaks only of the Roman Missal of 1962, there is no clear answer to this question. When things become clearer, I will update the link to "Canonical Status of the Dominican Rite."

 I feel safe in saying that one provision of the motu, that the readings are to be proclaimed in the vernacular in the translation approved by the bishops' conference of each country, whether in place of the Latin readings, as currently allowed a Low Mass, or before the sermon, this will probably become a norm for us as well. Fortunately, Dominican Liturgy Publications has already produced a lectionary for the whole year in the Dominican Rite using that official New American Bible text made available at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website. It may be purchased here.

Life in a Dominican Studium before Vatican II (Oakland, 1961)

I posted these videos some ten years ago, but I thought some of our readers, who never saw them, might find them interesting. Enjoy!

The video "Life a Monastery" was broadcast on Oakland Channel 6 in 1961. It shows life in the Western Dominican Province House of Studies, Saint Albert the Great Priory, in Oakland CA.  

VIDEO ONE The film begins with clips of our House of Studies, still the same today in Oakland CA. Then follows film of the Dominican Rite Solemn Mass, the center of the liturgical day at the House of Studies. The film than moves to the class room, and then highlights different aspects of the life. 

A list of those appearing is below the video. The times listed for each of the scenes in the identification list tell where you can find that segment on the video.

Answer Key for Scanlon and Scanlon's Second Latin Available

 Since the the response to the news of the publication announced here of an Answer Key for Cora and Charles Scanlon’s Latin Grammar for Reading the Missal and Breviary was so good, Dominican Liturgy Publications​ is pleased to announce the publication of an Answer Key for the Scanlons’ Second Latin: Preparation for Reading Philosophy, Theology, and Canon Law.

This second volume of the Scanlons' set was originally published in 1944 for use in minor seminaries and even in major seminaries, for seminarians with weak or non-existent Latin. There are exercises reviewing virtually all the grammar and each chapter has reading exercises from scholastic theology or philosophy manuals, as well a from the 1917 Code of Canon Law and the decrees of the Council of Trent. This is an excellent supplement to Latin Grammar for those who want to go beyond the Liturgy and the Vulgate Bible either in homeschooling or self-study.

For those who would need copies of the textbooks themselves, Latin Grammar itself is available here and here. The first version has better binding and printing, but the second is a cheaper. And Second Latin is available here and here. Again, the quality and price differences are the same.

We wish all our readers a fruitful and holy Lent.

Dominican Rite Ordo for 2021 (English)

Greetings and Merrie Christmas,

Through the kindness of Breviarium S.O.P., I am happy to announce that the Dominican Rite Ordo for 2021 is now available at Dominican Liturgy Publications. This Ordo is intended for use by anyone who prays the 1962 Dominican Rite Breviary. 

It includes a complete calendar for the Dominican Rite liturgical year 2021. In addition, it includes the collect prayers for the Dominican blesseds who are not on the calendar (so that a votive commemoration can be made of their feast), obits of the deceased Masters General, and announcements of days when Dominican Tertiaries (Lay Dominicans) can obtain plenary indulgences. Finally, it contains an English translation of the Office of Prime, which was omitted from the 1967 English translation of the Dominican Breviary.

Answer Key for Scanlon & Scanlon's Latin Grammar Available


Greetings to our readers who are interested in learning Ecclesiastical Latin. There are many books out to help you learn Ecclesiastical Latin but most require an instructor or tutor. Many seminarians, priests, and lay people want to learn Latin but do not have a readily available instructor. In my years of teaching Latin, I am convinced that the best book for liturgical Latin remains Cora and Charles Scanlon’s Latin Grammar for Reading the Missal and Breviary, first published in 1944 by B. Herder Book Co., and still in print from TAN Books.

The one problem with this book is that there was no available full Answer Key.  I am happy to announce that we have now published one for all the exercises of every lesson. You may order copies of this Key from Dominican Liturgy Publications, which also has available many other resources for the Dominican Rite and the Latin liturgy.

Dominican Rite Calendar for 2021

Sample Page of the Calendar

 I am pleased to announce that the Dominican Rite Liturgical Calendar for 2021 is now available here. This continues the annual publication of the calendar at Dominican Liturgy, where downloads of the current and older calendars are always available on the left sidebar. I am posting this early so that readers who notice any errors can email me and let me know about them.

This calendar has adjusted the dates and rankings of post-1962 Dominican saints and blesseds to conform to changes in the Order's calendar promulgated November 30, 2019. These changes are minor because most of the Dominican saints currently celebrated were already on the calendar in 1962 and so are celebrated as they were at that time.

The calendar also includes an extensive appendix giving all the local feasts for every diocese in the United States where there is a Dominican friars community. United States national feasts are listed as such in the calendar itself. Finally there is a list of all the Dominican saints and blesseds only celebrated in particular provinces listing the province(s) for each.

May this calendar facilitate the offering of the prayers of the Mass and Office to Our Blessed Lord. St. Dominic, pray for us!

Eighteenth Sunday after Trinity in the Medieval "Baltic Rite"

Readers may be interested in this video of a representation of the Sunday Mass of the Eighteenth Sunday after Trinity in the use of Hamburg-Bremen, which was that of the Baltic region and Scandinavia in the middle ages.  I have had to divide the video because of its size and the limits of Blogger uploading.  The first video shows the Mass from the priest's preparation to the Creed.  The second shows the Mass from the people's Offertory Procession to the final blessing.  If you want to view the video as a single file, click here.  If you would like a program in Latin and English, click here.
As you watch the first part, you will notice a number of interesting rubrical differences from the Mass of the St. Pius V.  In particular, the singing of the Creed before the sermon.  In this video I have cut the sermon, as well as a scholarly introduction and the people's prayers (Apostle's Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, Sign of the Cross) because they are in Swedish. If you want to see these, you may at this YoutTube link, which has  the entire video. As you can see in the program, the Mass follows the order of chants and readings used in the North before the Tridentine reform.  They come mostly from the 17th and 18th Sundays after Pentecost. Also note the variants in the Latin text, including one in the Gloria. You will notice the priest removing his vestments to preach during the Creed.

And here is the second half, beginning with the Offertory Procession:
Of special interest is the people's Communion. Only two people go to Communion (on the altar steps because of the Rood Screen), since this is not one of the four "General Communions" that were typical of medieval practice. The ambry-tabernacle is also authentic and still in the church. Virtually all the art, as well as the manuscript altar Missal, are actual medieval artifacts.  Note also the manner of giving the Blessing with the paten and the absence of the Last Gospel---only added in the 1500s.  The date of this Mass given at the beginning of the Video would be October 5, 1450.

Finally, those familiar with the Dominican Rite, which is also part of this northern liturgical family, will a number of things in common, such as the extension of the priest's arms after the Consecration.  You can read more about this lovely little church at Endre, Sweden, here.

Sadly, I do not know the origin of this project, but I believe it was put together by a professor of liturgy at the University of Copenhagen.  They certainly went to great lengths to make it authentic.

External Solemnity of St. Domiinic on August 9?

I have received an inquiry as to whether the First Class Feast of St. Dominic, which in the Dominican Rite falls on August 4, may be celebrated on the following Sunday as an "External Solemnity."  The Dominican Rite Missal (of 1933 or 1965) contains no provisions for "external solemnities" as it was intended for use by Dominicans in our own priories.  What about use in parishes?  Years ago, the then liturgist of the Order, Fr. Pierre-Marie Gy, O.P., explained to a friar of my province that the principle to be applied is that, when the Dominican Rite rubrics are vague or do not treat a matter, recourse is to be made to the Roman Rite (here that of 1962) as the "mother rite."

Here are the pertinent provisions of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (1962) in English:

V - Votive Masses on the External Solemnity of Feasts

356. The "external solemnity" of any feast means the celebration of the feast without an office, for the good of the faithful, either on the day on which the feast is impeded, or on a Sunday when the feast occurs during the week, or on some other established day.

357. An external solemnity either belongs to a feast by right or is granted by a special indult.

358. An external solemnity belongs by right only to:
   a) the feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, on the 3rd Sunday after Pentecost;
   b) the feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the rosary, on the first Sunday of October;
   c) feasts of the 1st or 2nd class which are connected with some special liturgical service, if that liturgical service is transferred to a Sunday with the approval of the Holy See, only for the Mass which is celebrated in connection with the aforesaid liturgical service;
   d) the feast of a duly constituted principal patron;
   e) the anniversary of the dedication of the church itself in which the Mass is said;
   f) the titular feast of the church itself;
   g) the titular feast of the order or congregation;
   h) the feast of the holy founder of the order or congregation;
   i) feast of the 1st and 2nd class which are celebrated with an especially large attendance by the faithful; of this matter the local ordinary is the judge.

So, it is permitted to celebrate the Dominican Rite Mass of St. Dominic on the following Sunday.  As a first-class Mass, the Sunday would not be commemorated by a second collect as first class feasts only permit an extra collects for "privileged memories" (e.g. ferials in Advent and Lent) and Sundays after Pentecost are not privileged. In addition, one should remember that an "External Solemnity" is a Votive Mass, not a transferred feast.  So, if you have a celebration of St. Dominic on the following Sunday, the Mass and Office on August 4 is still that of St. Dominic.

It  might also be useful treat another question here as well.  Can the celebration of the the major feasts in the U.S. that are not holy days of obligation, which are moved to Sunday in the New Rite, also be celebrated in Dominican Rite on the Sunday?  These feasts are Epiphany, Ascension, and Corpus Christi.  Following the same principle, as there is permission granted to do so by the Holy See in the rubrics of the New Missal, and that would be equivalent to the permission of 358c above, it is my opinion that they may be so celebrated. As holy days of obligation are matters of canon law, not rubrics, the current discipline as to Mass obligation applies, not that in force in 1962.

One final matter for those using the 1962 Dominican Rite Breviary: the Office is not transferred under the rubrics for an external solemnity. Rather, the Office of the proper Sunday is used, which would be the 10th after Pentecost (1962 Missal) or the 8th after the Octave of Trinity (1933 Missal).  And the Mass and Office of the proper day of the feast remain those of the feast. And remember in any case that one is never obligated to celebrate an External Solemnity Votive Mass; such Masses are merely an option.

May God grant all the brethren his choicest blessings on the feast of St. Dominic, whichever day they celebrate it on.

"Beware the Litanies of the Friars Preachers, for they work wonders!"

Although not much in use these days, the Dominican Order has its own ancient and venerable Litany to the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Litaniae B. Mariae Virginis Ab Ordine Receptae, historically used during times of grave need and tribulation.

These gained their fame for their efficacy during the XIIIth century, when the Order provoked certain jealousies and concerns as she rose in prestige.  Troubles began in earnest in 1254, when some prelates prevailed upon the Holy Father, Pope Innocent IV, to publish his bull, “Etsi animarum”, which imposed severe restrictions on the Order of Friars Preachers, such as not being able to hear the confessions of the faithful, not being able to bury the faithful, not being able to celebrate Holy Mass publicly nor offer other sacraments, under penalty of excommunication.  This would obviously be the death of the Order.  Until he paid heed to those who slandered the honor of the Order, the Holy Father had actually been a great protector of our Order.

The Master of the Order of that time, Bl. Humbert of Romans, greatly troubled and pained over what was happening to his beloved Order, was at a loss.  And so he knelt before an image of the Most Holy Virgin, and in tears asked for her help and intercession.  The Virgin replied to him, "From this very moment, the Order has been freed."  A few days later, Pope Innocent IV died in Naples, sixteen days after issuing his bull against the Dominicans, which his successor, Pope Alexander IVth, quickly annulled with his own bull, “Nec insolitum,” on the 31st of December, 1254.

During these trying times, the Order also suffered persecution from the secular Masters of the University of Paris, led by William of Saint-Amour, who sought to expel the mendicants from their ranks, and even distributing flyers against the Order, to attempt to turn the faithful against them.  The same Bl. Humbert of Romans, in the General Chapter of 1256, ordered that the Seven Penitential Psalms be prayed, along with the Litany with other prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Dominic.  A few days later, in Rome, as the brethren were praying the Litany, a friar fell into a trance, and had a vision of Our Lord over the altar, with Our Lady at His side, who was asking her Son to heed the petitions of the friars.  A few days later, over the course of ten days, Pope Alexander IV intervened decisively in favor of the friars, and against those who calumnied the Order.

A historian from that era commented that thanks to these Litanies, not only did the great persecutions against the Order come quickly to a favorable end, but the Order itself increased in honor, leading some rather surprised cardinals to remark, "Cavete a Litaniis Fratum Prædicatorum qui mirabilia faciunt” (“Be careful with the Litanies of the Friars Preachers -- they work wonders”).

Readers will easily note the longer petitions, which all begin "Sancta Maria", and not by title alone, with some interesting titles and honors from older forms of piety that might strike our ears as odd or excessive, but for this author, the additional triplet of "Daughter of God," "Daughter of Joachim," and "Daughter of Anne," as well as the three-fold "She-lamb" petitions are quite beautiful.

Many thanks to the English student friars and those of Traditio Spiritualis Sacri Ordinis Prædicatorum, we present the Litany here for use... with caution.
