Eucharistic Prayer V

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 13, 2007

(Noted in the program for the Pope's trip to Brazil [Tip to Rorate Caeli])

...for the Mass of Canonization, His Holiness will employ Eucharistic Prayer V! That is correct, it is not a typo: Eucharistic Prayer... V!

OK, so I am more Catholic than the Pope.

    See-to-See: Approved or not various Conferences of Bishops keep meeting to correct erors. Ecclesia Dei and the Una Voce chartered by the Vatican continue to espouse needed corrections. Liturgiam Authenticam and Sacramentum Caritatis were clear about corrections needed. The GIRM was corrected. Leavened loaves & parties at the altar have been sliced and diced from the "menu". BXVI has prolificly written about the abuses in books and homilies and addresses and hopefully a motu propio. Abuses abound

    Di, for the Novus Ordo there are 8 Eucharistic Prayers (at least for English speaking countries). There are only 4 published in the standard Missal for the laity.

    Regardless of its doctrinal merits or lack thereof, the fact is that the Eucharistic Prayer is approved by the Holy See. It was drafted by the bishops of Brazil, who were and still are, successors of the apostles.

    #5 of 14 approved Brazilian Eucharistic Prayers. Curious the need for so much "nuance" (as in the sense from last week). Some will claim poor translation, poetry not a play across languages... Baloney! This is a romantic language with roots right back to Latin. Anyone who has studied any of the languages rooted in Latin can see very quickly if the translations are true or not. It does not take a rocket scientist to translate even crudely to see the Latin-English is all messed up too

    Are you sure the Holy Father used this Eucharistic Prayer? I do not think he would have made that mistake. Maybe something got mixed-up in the translation. Bishop Peter Marini would know better then that!

    Why dwell on what eucharistic prayer was used? All the Holy Father's public statements displayed vast wisdom. He got everything right. He was and is touched by the Hand of Grace.
