The Necessaries.
I am a member of the Latin Mass Community of St. Anthony Parish,Wichita, Ks. I also assist at low mass at, St. Mary Parish, Newton, Ks. While this blog may at times comment on, or allude to, a community or parish, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of any particular parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.


The 8 Prayers Every Catholic Should Know in Latin

1. Sign of the Cross
    In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen 

2.  Creed

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem caeli et terrae, visibilium omnium et invisibilium. Et in unum Dominum Iesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum, et ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula.
Deum de Deo, Lumen de Lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero, genitum non factum, consubstantialem Patri; per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines et propter nostram salutem descendit de caelis.
[kneel] Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine, et homo factus est. [stand]
Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato, passus et sepultus est, et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas, et ascendit in caelum, sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est cum gloria, iudicare vivos et mortuos, cuius regni non erit finis.
Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem, qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per prophetas. Et unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum, et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.
3. The Lord’s Prayer
     PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

4. The Hail Mary
     AVE MARIA, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen. 

5. Glory Be
    GLORIA PATRI, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen. 

6. Oratio Fatimae (The Fatima Prayer)
     Domine Iesu, dimitte nobis debita nostra, salva nos ab igne inferiori, perduc in caelum omnes animas, praesertim eas, quae misericordiae tuae maxime indigent. (Blogger's note: Long time Latin Mass champion and attendee, accomplished writer and Latinist Jim Spencer, Wichita, translated (for a prayer card) this first opening phrase as "Oh Mi Jesu" which appears to me (my uneducated brain) to be less formal and more personally imploring (help anyone?).

7. Hail, Holy Queen

    SALVE REGINA, Mater misericordiae. Vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve. Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae. Ad te Suspiramus, gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle. Eia ergo, Advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte. Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exsilium ostende. O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria.

V. Ora pro nobis, Sancta Dei Genitrix.
R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

8. The Angelus
    V. Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae.
     R. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.

Ave Maria, gratia plena; Dominus tecum: benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus. * Sancta Maria, Mater Dei ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

V. Ecce ancilla Domini,
R. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

Ave Maria, gratia plena; Dominus tecum: benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus. * Sancta Maria, Mater Dei ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

V. Et Verbum caro factum est,
R. Et habitavit in nobis.

Ave Maria, gratia plena; Dominus tecum: benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.* Sancta Maria, Mater Dei ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genetrix,
R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Oremus. Gratiam tuam, quaesumus, Domine, mentibus nostris infunde; ut qui, Angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus, per passionem eius et crucem ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. R. Amen.


Here we come to a most important difference between the Catholic idea of rights and that of the atheist/deist/masonic revolutionaries of the 18th Century.

Catholic thought had always included the concept of rights, usually called "liberties" in early documents, but that concept was neither abstract nor detached from concrete
circumstances. Rights were considered as counterparts of duties; when the duty ceased to exist, so did the right. A parent, for example, has a duty to educate his child and therefore the right to do so- no matter what the state may say about it.  When the child is grown, or if he dies, both the parental duty and right also cease to exist. Similarly, a man has a duty to support his family and therefore has a right to do so. In an extreme case in which a family was starving, the father would have a moral right to steal in order to fulfill his God-given duty.

What the Pope (Pope Pius VI) objected to in the French manifesto (Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen on March 10, 1791) was the idea of universal and abstract rights unconnected to either obligation or societal context. There is no free-speech right to speak blasphemy, for example, because there can be no possible obligation to do so. There is no right for a publisher to publish pornography, because there can be no conceivable duty to do so.
Likewise, there is no "inalienable" right to profess a false religion; those in error can be tolerated out of charity and societal concerns, but since they can have no obligation to lead others into error, they have no right to proselytize. 

To some readers this view of rights may be novel and even disturbing; it was, however,part of the fabric of Catholic society until the Enlightment and the (French) Revolution began to undermine it. 

On a practical level we can look at the operation of the "rights" ideology in our own society. We profess freedom of speech and freedom of the press, and the result is we are drowning in a sea of blasphemy and pornography and are unable to turn off the tap. There are simple no principles within our political ideology that allow us to cope effectively with our obscene culture or suppress even the craziest of sects. And, of course, once the rights ideology-- now, perhaps, the religion of rights-- is established, it spawns ever new rights: the rights of perverts, the rights of the child, the right to homosexual unions, the right to die.


Wichita Latin Mass Community: Christmas Mass in the Extraordinary Form

The whispers in the wind inform that the Wichita Latin Mass Community will be celebrating a Midnight Mass (First Mass of Christmas) this year. I understand there is a 99% assurance that this is happening. Yay! Now this is not official (nor is this blog for that matter), but things look good!
