Hi SBpfu - The Gradulae Romanum Triplex ('Triplex' for short) has as a superscript to the XIIc notation (square notes on a four-line staff), the neums as they are written in the sources (MSS from St Gall and Eisenach and Leon). Therefore, the Triplex offers to the singer-scholar, all approved extant sources. This would inform the performance more comprehensively- rather like reading Shakespear's folios alongside the modern editions of same.
On the other hand the ordinary Graduale Romanum … [Plus]
SBpfu - There are many a Bishop's council that actively work against the Magesterium of the Church, even though at their ordination to the Episcopate, these Bishops are told that they are now, not only pastors of their local Church, but pastors of the Church Universal.

The only thing one needs to know about Fr. McBrien (the pompous windbag who found sanctuary in Notre Dame's Theology dept. where his apostasy is highly esteemed) is that his book Catholicism was disapproved by the lefties in the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. It doesn't get to be more humiliating than that.
I usually like his presentations but I'm disappointed that Fr. Barron would refer to Karl Rahner in this talk. Rahner is NOT a great Catholic theologian especially to … [Plus]
