E. E. Evans-Pritchard - Wikipedia
In 1965, he published the highly influential work Theories of Primitive Religion, arguing against the existing theories of what at the time were called "primitive" religious practices. Arguing along the lines of his theoretical work of the 1950s, he claimed that anthropologists rarely succeeded in entering the minds of the people they studied, and so ascribed to them motivations which more closely matched themselves and their own culture, not the one they are studying. He also argued that believers and non-believers approached the study of religion in vastly different ways, with non-believers being quicker to come up with biological, sociological, or psychological theories to explain religion as an illusion, and believers being more likely to come up with theories explaining religion as a method of conceptualizing and relating to reality.

Yves Hernot - Wikipedia
The Calvary of Protest (1904) was Yves junior's most ambitious work. It was intended as a "symbol of the ultramontane church triumphing over the 19th century", as a response to the recent monument to the religious sceptic Ernest Renan, created nearby, and the proposed law separating church and state instituted by the radicals of the Third Republic.[4] The monument includes the inscribed phrase "Truly this man was the Son of God" in the Latin, French and Breton languages below the main scene of lamenting figures at the foot of the cross. Beneath is a relief depicting Saint Yves between a rich and poor man, along with statues of Saint Tugdual, founder of Tréguier, and Saint Brieuc, after whom the chief town in the region is named. It is surrounded by statues of saints representing "spiritual combat": Saint Maurice, Saint George, Joan of Arc and Saint Louis.[4] They are flanked by Saint Peter and Saint Andrew.

Ernest Renan - Wikipedia
Joseph Ernest Renan (French: [ʁənɑ̃]; 28 February 1823 – 2 October 1892)[2] was a French expert of Semitic languages and civilizations (philology), philosopher, biblical scholar and critic,[3] and historian of religion. He is best known for his influential and pioneering historical works on the origins of Early Christianity,[3] and his political theories, especially concerning nationalism and national identity. Renan is credited as being among the first scholars to advance the Khazar theory, which held that Ashkenazi Jews were descendants of the Khazars, Turkic peoples who had adopted Jewish religion and migrated to Western Europe following the collapse of their khanate.

Explication d'un cantique breton "Kantik Sant Erwan" - Ar Gedour
Le 19 mai, nous fêtons Saint Yves, patron secondaire de la Bretagne, mais aussi patron des avocats (bonne fête Maître Daniel !). A cette occasion, parlons un peu du cantique qui lui est dédié: kantik Sant Erwan.

Les paroles en ont été écrites par l’abbé Julien Clisson (1883-1945) à l’époque où il était vicaire à Tréguier, entre 1919 et 1924 (sources: Kanenoù ar Feiz de F. Morvannou). On trouve ce cantique qui est devenu le cantique emblématique pour évoquer Sant Erwan dans un recueil de cantiques bretons à Saint Yves daté de 1958.

Jag träffade hans släkting på St Yves-dagen i Tréguier 2019

À Jersey, Monseigneur Le Mintier réunit autour de lui un grand nombre de prêtres et de séminaristes proscrits, victimes de la Constitution civile du clergé. Il procède à des ordinations et devient le soutien des exilés. Devant la menace d'invasion des troupes révolutionnaires françaises, il doit quitter Jersey pour gagner l'Angleterre où il réside à Londres, chez madame de Catuelan-Le Merdy, veuve du président du Parlement de Bretagne, jusqu'à sa mort survenue le 21 janvier 1801. Il est inhumé au cimetière de Saint-Pancrace à Londres. L'abbé de Chateaugiron, prêtre du diocèse de Rennes, qui faisait partie de son entourage, prononce son éloge funèbre. Ses cendres seront rapatriées plus d'un demi-siècle plus tard, le 8 juillet 1868, et déposées dans la cathédrale Saint-Tugdual de Tréguier2.

Gabriel Loire - Wikipedia
Gabriel Loire (April 21, 1904 – December 25, 1996) was a French stained glass artist of the twentieth century whose extensive works, portraying various persons or historical scenes, appear in many venues around the world. He founded the Loire Studio in Chartres, France which continues to produce stained glass windows. Loire was a leader in the modern use of "slab glass" (French: dalle de verre), which is much thicker and stronger than the stained glass technique of the Middle Ages. The figures in his windows are mostly Impressionistic in style.[1]

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, dit Le Corbusier, est né en 1887 à La Chaux-de-Fonds en Suisse. Etudiant en art, il s’oriente vite vers l’architecture. Il s’installe à Paris en 1917. Il découvre les possibilités offertes par un matériau nouveau mis en oeuvre chez Auguste Perret : le béton armé. Sa pensée se veut en accord avec la société moderne, industrielle. « Ainsi l’architecture devient-elle le miroir du monde » (Vers une architecture, 1ère publication 1923). Ses réflexions traitent l’architecture à différentes échelles : du logis à l’urbanisme, il s’affaire à penser l’architecture au plus près du monde et des besoins modernes.

Shrine of the Virgin of the Rosary of Pompei - Wikipedia
The painting of "Our Lady of the Rosary" with its bronze gilt frame is presented to the pilgrims on the high altar. The venerated painting depicts the Virgin Mary and Child Jesus presenting rosaries to Saint Dominic and Saint Catherine of Siena. Originally bought by Dominican priest Alberto Radente for eight carlini in Naples,[6] it was offered to Bartolo Longo on the 13 November 1875 for the church he was building in Pompei.

An attempt was made by an amateur to restore it, and it was placed in the church on 13 February 1876, the foundation day for the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary there. In 1880 the famous Italian painter, Federico Madlarelli, offered to restore the image. It was again finally restored by Vatican artists in 1965.[3]

Bartolo Longo composed the "Novena of Petition" in July of 1879, testing it to himself while he suffered of typhoid fever. The text was inspired by a daily vision of a miracolous portrait of Our Lady of the Rosary, to which the Novena was firstly dedicated in Pompei.[7] The portrait depicts the Blessed Mother, seated upon a throne, is depicted holding the Child Jesus on her knee. He hands a rosary to St. Dominic, and the Blessed Virgin places a rosary into the hand of St. Catherine of Siena.

The full Prayer consists in a daily pronunciation of at least three decades (three Holy Misteries) of the Rosary, in respect of an alternation schema,[7] each day followed by the Novena. It takes 54 days of time, without interruption.[8]

Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?: Historical and Theological Reflections - Oxford Scholarship
This book defends the reasonableness of believing that Jesus of Nazareth rose from the dead. It mounts both historical arguments and theological arguments. There are only two alternatives as a historical matter: either Jesus actually rose from the dead, or else his bereaved disciples saw hallucinatory visions and were fooled by them. Indebted to N. T. Wright, this book argues that historical evidence points to the former scenario. The Gospels were backed by eyewitnesses who were living and telling their stories even during the time of the writing of the Gospels. In addition, “history” is not a neutral category; to know what history actually is, it is necessary to know whether or not there is a Creator God who loves his creatures. Furthermore, there is every reason to consider the Scriptures of Israel to belong to the background evidence by which scholars and inquirers evaluate the credibility of the testimony to Jesus’ Resurrection. The historical evidence for this event will be more credible to those who cultivate an ability to contemplate the whole. The book also addresses the question of why, after Jesus rose from the dead, he did not continue to show himself in his glorified flesh. Jesus’ entire mission is predicated upon helping us to avoid cleaving to the present world over God. He is leading us to where he is—the kingdom of God, the beginning of the new creation at the Father’s right hand.

Atala (novella) - Wikipedia
Atala, ou Les Amours de deux sauvages dans le désert is an early novella by François-René de Chateaubriand, first published on 12 germinal IX (2 April 1801). The work, inspired by his travels in North America, had an immense impact on early Romanticism, and went through five editions in its first year. It was adapted frequently for stage, and translated into many languages.

Along with René, it began as a discarded fragment from a long prose epic the author had composed between 1793 and 1799, Les Natchez, which would not be made public until 1826. In 1802 both Atala and René were published as part of Chateaubriand's Génie du christianisme.

Une affaire lyonnaise : la succession de l’abbé Couturier
Après le décès de l’abbé Paul Couturier, pionnier de l’œcuménisme spirituel, à Lyon en mars 1953, ses collaborateurs se divisent au sujet des nouvelles formes à donner à une œuvre si marquée par la personnalité de son fondateur. Tandis que Maurice Villain et Victor Carlhian souhaitent lui conserver son ancrage diocésain, les PP. Biot et Beaupère, dominicains, entendent privilégier quant à eux l’approche théologique. Deux foyers catholiques voués à l’œcuménisme se mettent donc parallèlement en place à Lyon : le dominicain Maurice-René Beaupère préside à la fondation du centre Saint-Irénée et le sulpicien Pierre Michalon, avec l’appui du cardinal Gerlier, prend la tête du Centre Unité chrétienne. De 1951 à 1955, l’étude des péripéties de cette succession renvoie à trois des traversant le catholicisme français de l’époque : le rôle respectif de la prière pour l’unité et du travail théologique dans l’émergence de l’œcuménisme en terrain catholique ; une certaine défiance du clergé séculier envers des religieux multipliant les initiatives aux avant-postes de l’Église de France ; la volonté lyonnaise de conserver à la primature des Gaules tout son rayonnement en évitant la récupération par Paris d’entreprises qu’elle revendiquait comme siennes.

The most famous of these is certainly Media vita, a piece which will always be associated with St Thomas Aquinas, whose biographers note that he would always weep copiously when it was sung, especially at the verse “Cast us not away in the time of our old age, when our strength shall fail, forsake us not, o Lord.”

Media vita in morte sumus - Wikipedia
In addition to its uses in the ordinary liturgy, "Media vita" was sung as a hymn to ask God for aid in times of public need,[5] and sometimes even as a sort of curse. In 1455 a group of nuns in Wennigsen, resisting the attempt of the Augustinian canon Johannes Busch and Duke William of Brunswick to reform their house, "lay down on their bellies in the choir with the arms and legs stretched out in the form of a cross, and bawled all through, at the top of their voices, the anthem "In the midst of life we are in death" ... Wherefore the Duke was afraid, and feared lest his whole land should go to ruin." Busch assured the Duke that no harm could come from the chant, so he responded to the nuns: "How were ye not afraid to sing the anthem "Media vita" over me? I stretch my fingers to God's holy gospels, and swear that ye must reform yourselves, or I will not suffer you in my land."[6]

Sainte-Anne-d'Auray - Wikipedia
The most notable feature of the village is the large Basilica of Sainte-Anne d'Auray, which is a major site of pilgrimage. Saint Anne is the patron saint of Brittany. The Basilica was built in the mid-nineteenth century to replace an earlier church which had housed an ancient statue of Anne. The statue was said to have been miraculously discovered by Yves Nicolazic, a local peasant, who claimed to have had visions from the saint asking him to build a church in her honour.[2] The statue was destroyed during the French Revolution. In the gardens is a large war memorial to Breton victims of World War I, containing sculptures by Jules-Charles Le Bozec. A large statue of Henri, comte de Chambord, the last significant Bourbon claimant to the monarchy of France, is at the end of the road leading to the now-disused railway station.

Hugues Felicité Robert de Lamennais - Wikipedia
Hugues-Félicité Robert de Lamennais (or De La Mennais) (19 June 1782 – 27 February 1854) was a French Catholic priest, philosopher and political theorist. He was one of the most influential intellectuals of Restoration France. Lamennais is considered the forerunner of liberal Catholicism and social Catholicism.

His opinions on matters of religion and government changed dramatically over the course of his life. He initially held rationalistic views, but in part due to the influence of his brother, Jean-Marie, came to see religion as an antidote for the anarchy and tyranny unleashed by revolution. He derided Napoleon, in part because of the Organic Articles, in which France acting unilaterally amended the Concordat of 1801 between France and the papacy. Lamennais assailed the Gallican view of the relationship between civil authority and the Church and was for a time a staunch ultramontane.

Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Bonne-Nouvelle de Rennes — Wikipédia
L’église Saint-Aubin basilique Notre-Dame-de-Bonne-Nouvelle, est une basilique catholique mineure situé dans le centre-ville de Rennes, en Bretagne, sur la place Sainte-Anne.

La tradition rapporte que le duc de Bretagne Jean IV attribua la victoire du parti des Montfort sur les Blois, lors de la guerre de succession du duché, au cours de la bataille d'Auray, à l'intercession de la Vierge Marie. Il fonda en 1368 le couvent dominicain de Rennes qui prit rapidement le nom de couvent de Bonne-Nouvelle, un tableau peint sur bois de la Vierge à l'Enfant devenant au cours du xve siècle l'objet de la vénération des fidèles rennais.

Divers miracles auraient accompagné cette dévotion, notamment la fin d'une épidémie de peste en 1634, consécutive à un vœu conditionnant la réalisation d'une maquette en argent massif de la ville de Rennes à l'arrêt du fléau. Pareillement, lors du grand incendie de Rennes du 23 décembre 1720, la Vierge de Bonne-Nouvelle serait apparue dans le ciel, l'évènement étant représenté sur un tableau de la basilique Saint-Sauveur 6.

Toujours est-il que l'œuvre votive fut fondue à la Révolution et remplacée après une épidémie de choléra en 1849 par un nouvel ex-voto datant de 1861. Lors de l'invasion prussienne de 1871, Mgr Brossay-Saint-Marc décida d'offrir un cierge à Notre-Dame-de-Bonne-Nouvelle chaque 8 septembre, si la ville était épargnée. Cette tradition s'est perpétuée et l'église Saint-Aubin a été érigée en basilique le 6 août 1916.

Reginald Foster | Reditus
I stumbled across the above video from last year which reminded me of my own indirect tie to Fr. Foster. I took a course with an instructor who had studied under him in Rome who also encouraged me to do the same. I politely refused because by that point I no longer felt like chasing butterflies. The instructor sadly passed away at a very young age, so I remember that as one of our only one-on-one interactions. Of interest to me is how much of a “progressive” Fr. Foster comes across here. I have written the same of disgraced Archbishop Rembert Weakland, who was a great medieval musicologist who came to dislike the musical patrimony of the Church. While there were many smart and capable scholars who let go of tradition with a heavy heart, many more threw it away with relish.



Online in the past few years, I have noticed young people who seem to have nostalgia for a church they never experienced. Many more social media echo chambers are based on the premise that the “Boomer” church is dying while small liturgical ghettos are bursting at the seams with young people whose Latin may be non-existent but who have a passion for incense and lace. Some will defend “Catholic Tradition®” while expressing a taste for leftist politics or permissive social norms. To me their nostalgia is quite irritating at times, because unlike their villains Foster and Weakland, they didn’t live through the process that led most people to cast off “Tradition” in the first place. As I wrote previously, Weakland forgot more Gregorian chant than all but the most expert choir director of today ever could learn.

I say all of this realizing that I am coming up on my quarter century anniversary of involvement / affiliation with the traditionalist movement (on and off, but mostly on). I remember the heroic days of the “Indult Mass”, listening to Fr. Gommar dePauw‘s Low Mass on a distant station on my dinky radio, my subscription to Latin Mass Magazine in the mid-1990’s etc. Not only that, but even in my early childhood, I remember the elderly priests who still said part of the Mass in Latin, the old women who refused to surrender their mantillas, and the occasional old devotionals that would appear at the back of the church. While I am no longer a true believer, I am sympathetic. Sometimes I think my lukewarm attitude is a result of overexposure, and a realization that the world was never as small as traditionalists imagine it to be. I have been over this elsewhere, and I don’t have to elaborate.

My recommendation to those attached to the old ways is that they should leave aside the pretense of preserving “Tradition,” for actual tradition is without pretense. It is just what people do, or rather, did. Even now, if I must go to a Roman Catholic Mass, I would prefer to go to the earliest one available on a Sunday morning, with the least number of people. At least there, the quiet that characterized centuries of anti-liturgical thinking in the West still reigns. That is really the genius of the Western Church in my opinion. I am no longer interested in the cappa magnas, the birettas, the elaborate polyphony, and the strutting around the altar in vestments no one uses anymore. That was never really THE TRADITION anyway. It’s just what people took for granted, like an honor guard at your local high school football game. Too much emphasis on a past that is largely unknown and could never return seems like shadow boxing with ghosts.

LMS Chairman: What are Side-Chapels for?
Why, one might ask, were they built in the first place? To make possible the celebration of private Masses simultaneously by different priests. This would naturally happen in a church served by several priests, when two or more of them did not have a public Mass to say on a given day. They will, obviously, wish to celebrate Mass, and may well wish to do so at the same time, say before breakfast. That would be natural, wouldn’t it?

Sacramentum Caritatis: Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on the Eucharist as the Source and Summit of the Church's Life and Mission (22 February 2007) | BENEDICT XVI
80. The eucharistic form of the Christian life is seen in a very special way in the priesthood. Priestly spirituality is intrinsically eucharistic. The seeds of this spirituality are already found in the words spoken by the Bishop during the ordination liturgy: "Receive the oblation of the holy people to be offered to God. Understand what you do, imitate what you celebrate, and conform your life to the mystery of the Lord's Cross." (222) In order to give an ever greater eucharistic form to his existence, the priest, beginning with his years in the seminary, should make his spiritual life his highest priority. (223) He is called to seek God tirelessly, while remaining attuned to the concerns of his brothers and sisters. An intense spiritual life will enable him to enter more deeply into communion with the Lord and to let himself be possessed by God's love, bearing witness to that love at all times, even the darkest and most difficult. To this end I join the Synod Fathers in recommending "the daily celebration of Mass, even when the faithful are not present." (224) This recommendation is consistent with the objectively infinite value of every celebration of the Eucharist, and is motivated by the Mass's unique spiritual fruitfulness. If celebrated in a faith-filled and attentive way, Mass is formative in the deepest sense of the word, since it fosters the priest's configuration to Christ and strengthens him in his vocation.

RORATE CÆLI: Special Series: "1919—2019 A Centenary Meditation on the Church" - Part IV: “Catholic” Purification and "Worker-Priests"
          Many personalists looked, greeted the early fascist victories of the Second World War hopefully. A number of them, long convinced of the innate weaknesses of the liberal bourgeois “established disorder,” expressed little surprise over the conquests of Nazi Germany. What really concerned them was whether Catholicism could find some way to turn a potentially apocalyptic “purification” down the proper pathway. For fascism was seen to be a “monstrous prefiguration” of the new personalist humanity waiting to be born. It clearly revealed the presence of strong will, virile manliness, self-sacrifice to the community, and even, in the context of the war effort, a commitment to the construction of that European-wide super society which many thought to be crucial to a better New World Order.

Full text of Pope Francis' in-flight press conference from Abu Dhabi
But it is a path that has come from afar. Pope Benedict had the courage to dissolve a women’s congregation that had a certain level because this slavery of women had entered, even sexual slavery, by clerics or by the founder. Sometimes the founder takes the freedom, empties the freedom of the sisters, it can arrive to this.

About Pope Benedict I would like to underscore that he is a man that had the courage to do many things on this theme. There’s an anecdote: he had all the papers, all the documents, on a religious organization that had within it even sexual and economic corruption. He went there, there were filters, he couldn’t arrive. In the end, the Pope, with the will to see the truth, called a meeting and Joseph Ratzinger left there with the folder and all of his papers. When he came back, he said to his secretary: put it in the archive, the other party won. We mustn’t be scandalized by this. They are steps in a process. But when he became Pope, the first thing [he said was]: bring me this from the archives and he began. The folklore about Pope Benedict makes him seem so good -- he is good, a piece of bread is worse than him -- but weak, but there’s nothing weak [in him]. He’s a strong man, a consistent man... and he started, and there in that congregation there was this problem that you say. Pray so that we can move forward. I want to go forward. There are cases, yes. But everywhere, but in some preferably new congregations, some, and in some regions more than others. Yes. And this... We are working.

Marie-Dominique Molinié — Wikipédia
Né André, en religion, Marie-Dominique Molinié est un prêtre catholique, dominicain et thomiste, né en 1918 et mort en 2002. Converti après des études de philosophie pendant lesquelles il est devenu ami de Cioran, il a été fortement marqué par les intuitions de sainte Thérèse de l'Enfant-Jésus.Il est rentré dans l'ordre des Dominicains en 1944. Il a exercé son ministère au couvent de Nancy, avant de se retirer dans une abbaye des Landes. Son originalité et son enseignement radical l'ont placé en marge du monde des enseignants de théologie. En revanche il est très apprécié dans les communautés du Renouveau charismatique catholique, comme la communauté des Béatitudes et la communauté du Chemin Neuf.

Fr Hunwicke's Mutual Enrichment: "Annibale Bugnini Reformer of the Liturgy" (1)
Archbishop Lefebvre signed the Decree. He spent much of his distinguished life resisting the neo-Modernism of the post-Conciliar decades, but in 1965 these were the views he expressed:

"There was something to reform and to rediscover. Clearly, the first part of the Mass, which is intended to instruct the faithful and for them to expresss their faith, needed to reach these ends in a clearer and so to speak more intelligible manner. In my humble opinion,  two such reforms seemed useful: first [the reform of?] the rites of that first part and also a few translations into the vernacular.

"The priest coming nearer to the faithful; communicating with them; praying and singing with them and therefore standing in the pulpit; saying the Collect, the Epistle, and the Gospel in their language; the priest singing in the divine traditional melodies the Kyrie, the Gloria, the creed with the faithful: these are so many good reforms that give back to that part of the Mass its true finality."
