@Stephen_P_White Also... any reconstruction which destroys the vaults of the interior ceiling which likely saved the cathedral just seem to dishonor the medieval genius which likely saved it.

“I order you, O sleeper, to awake. I did not create you to be held a prisoner in hell. Rise from the dead, for I am the life of the dead. Rise up, work of my hands, you who were created in my image. Rise, let us leave this place!” From An Ancient #HolySaturday Homily. https://t.co/hgRqLyu1r8

@mcfryer @eramirezsj It’s because every #Jesuit who moves into a new house gets permission from the minister to buy whatever bowl they feel they need for their cereal, etc... those bowls are holy memorial of those who have gone before us. 🤣🤣

@mcfryer @eramirezsj I was on dish duty in our community here in Toronto last night.... we have at least 5 different types..

@Tims_r_us Yeah I think that that idea goes back to the old pre-Pius XII reform of the Easter vigil, when it used to take place on Holy Saturday morning rather than in the evening, as it does now.


from Twitter https://twitter.com/mrogerssj

@dcosacchi Hahaha seems about right!


from Twitter https://twitter.com/mrogerssj

@JanellePeters The friend I was talking to said the same thing, and mentioned that that was why he didn’t fast. Thank God there’s some wisdom in these rules to make reasonable pastoral exceptions for things like that.


from Twitter https://twitter.com/mrogerssj

@ziiig That’s intriguing, because that would have been right after the reform. 🤷🏻‍♂️


from Twitter https://twitter.com/mrogerssj

@JanellePeters I was talking with a diabetic friend today who mentioned the same thing. Of course the Church makes exceptions for those cases, but I know so many good people who do their best to still honor it.


from Twitter https://twitter.com/mrogerssj

@JanellePeters I didn’t either! Apparently one of the older guys in my community remembers that for him, growing up, the rule was noon on Saturday because they celebrated the vigil in the morning.. he apparently still abides by that rule...

Settle a debate for my #Jesuit community... I hold the breaking of the #fast of #Lent occurs only AFTER the #Easter Vigil in the evening and NOT at noon according to the pre- Pius XII reform which moved the vigile from #HolySaturday morning.. This is serious stuff people.... 😉🤣 https://t.co/bvkGHTHBd7

The #artist Tintoretto angled the #perspective of this painting of the washing of the feet on #holythursday towards the people in the #Catholic #church it was originally intended for, and then put #jesus in the foreground.

RT @eharris_it: By me, @Pontifex kicks off #HolyThursday w an appeal for priests to imitate Jesus' closeness to the crowds that followed him: "We anoint by dirtying our hands in touching the wounds, the sins & the worries of the people. We anoint by perfuming our hands in touching their faith” https://t.co/gitrw96DmR

@SteveMissionary There are some priests who are architects, I know a couple. They do some great liturgical design because they ALSO have a sense of how a space should function practically.

RT @FrHilderbrand: BROTHER PRIESTS - I know that some of you believe that telling a joke during a sermon is in poor taste. However, a beautiful Baroque tradition insists that you tell one during your Easter sermon. The laughter of the people was called the "risus paschalis" (Easter laughter).

@SteveMissionary I feel like it’s sacrilege to say, and definitely it is a betrayal of gothic architecture, but there is something beautiful about the light steaming in through the holes in the ceiling.

@stevenpmillies The fact that there are visible, tangible, sacramental signs damaged by the fire may be the reason why it can process it, and might even cause some to ask why this place is important for them.

@JanellePeters Fair enough, the palms for clergy in St Peter’s square are also so absurdly elaborate that no one would complain... though there are usually questions to be asked about the rest of the liturgy. 😉

@JanellePeters Nope. The palms are enough...
