Sancta Missa Conference for Laity 2017 by music955 on Scribd



Sancta Missa Conferences




Ten years ago, Pope Benedict XVI promulgated his Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum so that the faithful might have the opportunity to be spiritually fed and formed by the beauty of ancient form the Latin Mass (usus antiquior) that has been the treasure of Roman Catholics throughout the ages.

Since 2007, the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius have been pleased to have the opportunity to train priests, seminarians and laity about the classic form the Latin Rite celebrated according to the 1962 Missale Romanum (Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) at workshops, conferences and though our website http://www.SanctaMissa.org.

In our conferences we try to help the faithful learn to approach the "Mass of the Ages" with deeper reverence and love, so that as they are attracted to this venerable liturgy, they might more profoundly enter into the Eucharistic Sacrifice.

In our instruction on the traditional Mass of the Roman Rite, we strive to help everyone both intellectually and spiritually to understand its sacred ceremonies, and to be transformed by its inestimable beauty.



The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius have offered Sancta Missa Workshops many times in the Archdiocese of Chicago, across the USA, and abroad. The conference to be held in September is our first conference in the Springfield Diocese. This opportunity has unfolded as the Canons have been newly established in Springfield. This has been made possible by an invitation from His Excellency, the Most Rev. Thomas John Paprocki, Bishop of Springfield, with the generous blessing of His Eminence Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago. As the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius come to the Springfield Diocese, we hope that our parish ministry at St. Katherine Drexel Parish (comprised of Sacred Heart Church and St. Patrick Church) and Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish will be a blessing for the faithful. As we announce this conference, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us on Saturday, September 30, 2017, at Sacred Heart Church in Springfield, Illinois, as we learn from the wit and wisdom of Bishop Bruskewitz as we study more about the beauty of our Catholic faith and the sacred treasures of the Mass.



About our Conference Speaker -- Bishop Bruskewitz




Born in Milwaukee on September 6, 1935, Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz attended St. Wenceslaus parochial school in Milwaukee, and then attended St. Lawrence Seminary at Mount Calvary, Wisconsin, St. Francis Seminary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Pontifical North American College and the Gregorian University in Rome.

He was ordained a priest on July 17, 1960, in Rome, at the Church of the Twelve Apostles by Cardinal Traglia, the Vicar General of Rome. He served as an assistant pastor in parishes near Milwaukee, and then did graduate work at the Gregorian University in Rome, where he received a doctorate in Dogmatic Theology in 1969. He taught for a very brief time at St. Francis Seminary, and then worked in the Congregation for Catholic Education, a department of the Holy See, in Rome, for eleven years. Bishop Bruskewitz was named a Monsignor in 1976 and elevated to be a Prelate of Honor 1980. In 1980, he became the pastor of Saint Bernard Parish in a suburb of Milwaukee, and in 1992, was named the eighth Bishop of the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska. He was consecrated a bishop and installed in the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln, on May 13, 1992.

As Bishop of Lincoln in 1995, he inaugurated a year of reflection, teaching and adoration of our Eucharistic Lord by promoting parish prayers and days of devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, a diocesan pilgrimage to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and the year culminating in a Eucharistic Congress Mass with approximately 5000 people in attendance. This was a year of preparation for the Diocesan Synod of 1996. The Diocesan Synod, in which the entire Diocese participated, had a reflective, prayerful focus on all aspects of diocesan life.

The sponsorship of the Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital was assumed by the Diocese to preserve its local ownership and the Catholic nature of this well-known rehabilitation facility. Paul VI Heights was built in Lincoln to provide affordable housing in the promotion of family life for those with poor or moderate incomes. A new college seminary, Saint Gregory the Great Seminary opened in the Diocese in 1998. Among other events, Bishop Bruskewitz greeted the arrival of a group of Carmelite nuns in the diocese, and in 2000, he welcomed the opening of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, as well as the arrival of a group of men religious following the Cistercian Rule. Priestly and religious vocations, Catholic education, Catholic health care, and Catholic social services are some of the many areas of diocesan life that continue to be promoted by Bishop Bruskewitz.

Under Bishop Bruskewiz's leadership as Bishop of Lincoln, the following Schools and Parishes were opened: All Saints School, Holdrege; North American Martyrs School and Parish, Lincoln; St. Vincent DePaul School, Seward; St. Michael School, Lincoln; St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, North Platte; St. Katharine Drexel Parish, Franklin; St. Andrew Dung Lac & Companions Parish, Lincoln; Cristo Rey Parish, Lincoln.

On September 14, 2012, Pope Benedict accepted Bishop Bruskewitz's retirement as the Bishop of Lincoln, and at the same time appointed him as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese until Bishop James Conley was installed on November 20, 2012.

ABOUT THE OPERA

Cavalleria rusticana (Italian for "rustic chivalry") is an opera in one act by Pietro Mascagni to an Italian libretto by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci, adapted from a play and short story written by Giovanni Verga. Considered one of the classic verismo operas, it premiered on 17 May 1890 at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome.

Pagliacci (Italian for "Clowns") is an Italian opera in a prologue and two acts, with music and libretto by Ruggero Leoncavallo. It is the only Leoncavallo opera that is still widely performed. Opera companies have frequently staged Pagliacci with Cavalleria rusticana by Mascagni, a double bill known colloquially as 'Cav and Pag'.

Pagliacci premiered at the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan on 21 May 1892, conducted by Arturo Toscanini, with Adelina Stehle as Nedda, Fiorello Giraud as Canio, Victor Maurel as Tonio, and Mario Ancona as Silvio. Nellie Melba played Nedda in London in 1893, soon after the Italian premiere, and it was given in New York on 15 June 1893, with Agostino Montegriffo as Canio.

Since 1893, it has often been performed in a so-called Cav/Pag double-bill with Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo.
