Solemn Traditional Latin Triduum for Toronto

We are pleased to announce that the Solemn Paschal Triduum according to the Roman Missal of 1962 will be held in Toronto. The last two years we were thankful to the Carmelite Sisters of the Infant Jesus in Zephyr for hosting the Triduum at the Zephyr Carmel. Please keep our good friend, Sister Marie Therese, OCD, and the nuns there in your prayers.

This year, we will be in Toronto at St. John's Chapel at Blessed John Henry Newman High School on the grounds of St. Augustine's Seminary. We thank the Rector of St. Augustine's Seminary, the Principal and Caretakers of Blessed Cardinal Newman High School and the Permit Staff of the Toronto Catholic District School Board for their support and cooperation. The large chapel is located on the west side of the school with entry from 100 Brimley Road South off Kingston Road in Scarborough on the grounds of St. Augustine's Seminary.

All services will be in the solemn form with priest, deacon and subdeacon. If you wish to assist as a server or in the Schola, please contact unavocetoronto@gmail.com.

Your financial support for this project is welcomed and necessary as there is a significant cost to the Toronto Traditional Mass Society for the permit, caretaking staff, insurance and liturgical items. Would you consider a tax-deductible donation today which you can do so online here at CanadaHelps?

Latin Mass 101 - Coming to Mississauga January 30


 




Nota Bene: Correction to address on poster:

5440 Durie Road

Catholics in Sudbury, Ontario now have a Traditional Latin Mass regularly celebrated!

Let us rejoice with some good news for the Catholics of Sudbury, a vibrant city in northern Ontario which has given, or I should say, sold to the world much of what it sits on. A few months ago, I had heard through some contacts there and in the liturgical movement in Canada that after many years, a traditional Latin Mass was to be held regularly.

The community is known as the Mater Dei Latin Mass Community and Mass it twice per week; a Read Mass on Wednesday at 5:00 P.M. and a Sung Mass with incense on Sundays at 5:00 P.M. The Masses are offered at St. Casimir's Church at 210 Paris Street. 

The community has a Facebook page and their web page which can be found at http://www.materdeiparish.ca

God bless the people who have made this possible.

Seminarian Fundraising Campaign for Abbé Joseph Heppelle

The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - Una Voce Toronto is established to promote the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, (the Traditional Catholic Latin Mass) and Gregorian chant in the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Abbé Joseph Heppelle is the eldest of eight from a home-schooled family here in the Archdiocese. He grew up serving and singing the chant for the Traditional Roman Liturgy. He is studying for the Catholic priesthood at the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest Seminary of St. Philip Neri in Gricigliano, Italy. Abbé Heppelle is now an Acolyte and will, God-willing, be ordained to the Subdiaconate in the spring of 2016.

This is the third year now that we have assisted in fundraising for Abbé Heppelle. Seminary cost is expensive as you can imagine and challenging in that all his classes are in French and Italian.

Please give consideration to donating for this young-man's education as he prepares to serve Jesus Christ, Sovereign Priest and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and the community of faithful which belong to Her.

Donations through CanadaHelps are tax-deductible and you will be receipted directly by them. For a small fee, they send the funds on to us (saving us the paperwork) and we will send 100% of the funds to Abbé Heppelle. 

You may visit our web page at www.unavocetoronto.com or write us directly at unavocetoronto@gmail.com to arrange a donation directly to the Toronto Traditional Mass Society with 100% sent to him with a tax-receipt provided directly by us.

May God bless you and thank you

Financial support for Deacon in India from Vox Cantoris

Dear Voxers,
Help me to become a Priest & build a dwelling 4 My Parents (Deacon Joice PJ)As you know, there is a little widget running to the left for Deacon Joseph of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church in India. Reverend Deacon has been called by Christ to His Holy Priesthood. As the eldest son, he is also taking responsibility for his parents' situation.His parents live in a three walled hut. His father has recovered from tuberculosis but I imagine the rainy tropical seasons are not the best for him. I have posted twice, here and here about the need for funds for Deacon Joseph to complete a small house for his parents before moving on to ordination. 

For your assurance, I have personally communicated with his religious superior and his seminary to validate that this is a legitimate need.

You have been wonderful. When I first posted, the amount donated was only $60.00 (U.S funds). As of this writing, the amount is $3,053.00! Our dollars go a lot further in India but a little more is needed to finish the house. By the end of July, $2,000.00 more is needed and Deacon hopes to raise a total of $8,000.00.

There is also another matter that has slowed down the funds. PayPal, which is one of the three services to receive funds through YouCaring, is not providing any further services in India due to regulatory issues or lack thereof and banking concerns as reported by ZDNet. This has caused donations to stop and has become a great worry to Deacon Joseph.

The good news is that a solution has been found.

The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNA VOCE TORONTO, has partnered with Deacon Joseph to be the recipient of your donations. The Society is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency and is Chapter of Canada's longest standing member of Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce. The TTMS will receive the funds which you donate to Deacon Joseph at YouCaring from PayPal directly to its Toronto bank account. These funds (100% after the PayPal fee) will then be wired directly to Deacon Joseph's bank account in India. If you are in Canada and you wish to make a direct donation to the Society's seminarian program, you can do so and receive a charitable tax receipt. A grant in the equivalent amount will be made by the Society to Deacon Joseph. For more information on making a direct contribution, you may write to unavocetoronto@gmail.com.

But there is even better news.

A reader and commenter at this blog, The Anonymous Flower, has come forward and has pledged to provide matching contributions dollar for dollar for everything over the $4,000.00 mark! Dollar for dollar. How wonderful!

I know that there is considerable donor fatigue out there but the overall amount needed here is not great. You have been terrific, notwithstanding. 

Can we do a little more and push this not only over the $4000.00 where Anonymous Flower has offered to match but all the way to the amount to finish the house and secure his ordination?

Deacon writes, "Please provide my loving regards and prayers to everyone. I don't know how to thank you all. Our dream of home will come true soon."

Know that Deacon Joseph and his family keep his benefactors in their prayers.

SACRED TRIDUUM - Archdiocese of Toronto 2015



The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNA VOCE TORONTO, is very appreciative of the Discalced Nuns of Carmel of the Infant Jesus at Zephyr who belong to the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel for allowing us to use their Carmel for the Sacred Triduum for the second year. 

The services will be offered according to the Roman Missal of 1962 and will be sung with a spirit of solemnity and prayer to recall the Paschal Mystery of Our Blessed Lord's institution of the Holy Eucharist and priesthood, His saving passion and death and His glorious resurrection from the dead.

A map to the Carmel can be found here.

Five Traditional Latin Masses in Toronto for the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary!



Please note: Due to the calendric cycle of St. Nicholas on December 5, St. Lucy on December 13 and the Ember Saturday following, there will not be a Rorate Mass this year. While the Votive Mass of Our Lady could be celebrated on any Advent Feria, it is most traditional and practical on Saturdays. The Feasts listed are of higher rank than a Votive Mass and therefore take precedence. While there is a provision that it could be done on December 6, it would require three Collects, Secrets and Postcommunions --- the Commemorations of St. Nicholas, the Advent Feria and the Votive. At this point, it seems to us to become one of stretching the rubrics as far as one can and downplaying the Sanctoral Cycle so important to the traditional rite - to say nothing of neglecting St. Nicholas who we can thank for his physical prowess in dealing with the heretic, Arius.

Annual General Meeting - President's Report

The Annual General Meeting of the Toronto Traditional Mass Society-UNA VOCE TORONTO was held on Saturday, November 29, 2014 at 9;30 A.M. following the Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at Holy Family Church, Toronto.

The Board has been elected for a two-year term.

The financial report was given and received.

A review of the year's work was given with the highlight being the Mass in the Presence of a Greater Prelate on the Vigil of Pentecost with Cardinal Collins presiding to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the ordination of Msgr. Vincent Foy.

Una Voce Toronto was approached by Msgr. Foy in December 2013 to assist. The Board immediately pledged its help in every way to the good Monsignor. This included securing the Master of Ceremonies and liaison with the Chancery including His Eminence. A fund-raising project was undertaken to offset the expenses. A complete promotion was launched, the printing of the Missalette designed by Una Voce Toronto and the securing of the Schola, Choir and Organist for the Mass.This was the first time in half a century that this liturgy was celebrated.

In 2013, the Society raised a significant sum for Seminarian Joseph Heppelle which was matched by an anonymous benefactor.

This benefactor has committed to do the same this year. We ask for your donation again this year.

We are perhaps most pleased that for the first time in 50 years a Triduum in the traditional Latin Rite was held which the Society organised. We are committed to again undertaking this important work at the Carmel of the Infant Jesus in Zephyr.

The Society continues to work to ensure that all First Class Feasts have a Sung or Solemn Mass. We continue to maintain and develop relationships with our faithful priests and are pleased that more and more are expressing quiet interest.


The goals for 2015 include a continuation of Masses, the creation of a professional logo through Matthew Alderman Studios and the development of a new web page. This will begin a major push to increase membership significantly in order to mount a Conference in 2017 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Summorum Pontificum.

Sung Low Mass? Your questions answered.

Recently, a Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite was held and billed as a Sung Low Mass. This has been brought to our attention with the request for an explanation. It is not a question of validity, or licitness and we have not the authority to declare such a situation nor are we prepared to debate or discuss such a question. It is one of what is permitted by the rubrics and what is appropriate in the development of the traditional liturgy.

The Society has no direct authority. Its authority to comment comes from the broad authority of the documents, rubrics and guidelines associated with the traditional liturgy. In that, all of us have authority and in fact, have great responsibility. The authority which the Society possesses to pronounce in this or any other liturgical matters is called, "Referential Authority."

The rubrics of the traditional liturgy are much stricter and narrower than that of the new rite. It is the duty, in fact, it is the solemn obligation of all involved to humble themselves to the rubrics and follow that which is mandated.

It is also incumbent upon the Board of the Toronto Traditional Mass Society to clarify this situation as we have been asked to comment.

There is no "Sung Low Mass." There is a Read Mass (commonly referred to as "Low") and it is not sung, it has one server and a second may be "tolerated" there are never three, there is never incense nor the singing of any Propers or other parts of the Mass except in a very limited expression. In 1958, permission was given and still exists for a minimal amount of music specifically, an organ prelude and/or a processional hymn. a short sung Kyrie, a Latin hymn or motet at the Offertory relevant to the liturgical action in Latin or the vernacular, a short sung Sanctus and/or Agnus Dei and a hymn or motet at Communion relevant to the Eucharist in Latin or the vernacular and a recessional hymn and/or postlude, if desired. If this is what was followed, then there is no issue, however, to describe it as a Sung Low Mass is liturgically inaccurate. If the Propers were sung with the Gloria and Credo and priestly parts and responses, then that is something against what is anticipated in the liturgy and it would be in fact, a Missa Cantata or Sung Mass.

It is incumbent upon all laity wishing to assist at the Holy Mass to follow the rubrics and to work with diocesan priests familiar with the rubrics, and what is expected by all associated with this venerable Rite. It is also important that proper public communication be undertaken so as not to confuse the lay faithful.

The Board of the Toronto Traditional Mass Society invites anyone interested to contact us at unavocetoronto@gmail.com


Extraordinary Rubrical Musings - What's the difference?
December 1, 2013

In the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite, the ars celebrandi, if not the theology, has often been described as "horizontal." By this, it is generally meant that it is more focused on community than the Divine; for example, in his great work The Spirit of the Liturgy, Pope Benedict XVI calls Mass facing the people as a "community turned inwards on itself." When one attends an Mass in the new Rite, the music is generally banal and inappropriate and while the new GIRM clearly desires all of the Mass to be sung, it is still a mish-mass of this and that. Few realise that Gregorian chant is proper to the new liturgy as well. To a large degree, this is due to the 1967 document, Musicam Sacram, which; thankfully given paragraph 28 of Universae Ecclesiae, does not apply to the Roman Missal 1962. Let us observe carefully this paragraph; "Furthermore, by virtue of its character of special law, within its own area, the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum derogates from those provisions of law, connected with the sacred Rites, promulgated from 1962 onwards and incompatible with the rubrics of the liturgical books in effect in 1962." This is very important and in specific terms means, anything that came after which conflicts is not permitted. No Altar Girls, no communion in the hand, no communion standing (unless incapable to kneel), no Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, no lay Lectors and no Sunday Anticipated Masses on Saturday evenings. It is important to note that in connection with this, the Vigil Mass of Christmas, for example, is the Mass of December 24 (in violet and therefore, an Advent liturgy) and the same would apply to the other Vigil Masses such as the Vigil Mass of Pentecost in the 1962 Missal. These are not evening Masses anticipating the next day, they are the Mass of the day prior. In the OF Missal  the Vigil Masses are of a different nature and they can be celebrated after Vespers (4:00 PM) and be anticipated for the next day. In the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, there are clearer definitions and certainly fewer options. 

Some rubrics were modified during the legitimate liturgical movement of the first half of the 20th century. They were not so much a change in the liturgy but a change in the approach to the liturgy. For example in 1923, the first permission was given by Pope Pius XI for the "Dialogue Mass." Later, the desires of St. Pius X in Tra le sollecitudini and Pope Pius XI with the early Dialogue permissions and again recommended by Bl. Pius X in Mediator Dei and De musica sacra et sacra liturgia and again by Blessed John XXIII in Rubricarum instructum (English here) were implemented. Truly, those that came after 1958 are less well known. There was no internet after all and parishes and people did not rush out to buy new Missals or even consider reading the version then of the GIRM.

Some questions that have been asked of us and arise are the simple terms of the Mass in the old rite and connected with these there are some important rubrics. Let us look at a simple guideline based on all of the documents above as to the names and their general rubrics relating to music and the spoken word:

Solemn Mass 
A new priest's first Solemn Mass with an "Assistant Priest" present.
Known in Latin as a Missa Solemnis, this is the norm for the Mass with priest, deacon and subdeacon. All parts, Ordinary and Proper must be sung, incense is required. Propers should be sung in Gregorian melisma but can be sung in psalm-tone or recto-tono if necessary or they can be sung in polyphonic style or a drone could be used under the chant. A Pontifical Solemn Mass is when a bishop presides and while there are additional ceremonials, the musical requirements are the same.

Semi- Solemn Mass
Unbeknownst to many, in 1963 a universal permission was granted for a Semi-Solemn Mass without a Subdeacon. The Deacon sings the Epistle and assumes many of the function of the Subdeacon except for the holding of the paten in the humeral veil. The Church was clearly interested in breaking out of the Low Mass Sunday manner of celebration so prevalent. Most parishes had at least two priests and one could have served as a Deacon for the principal Sunday celebration. This is no longer permitted as per Pope Benedict XVI in the Instruction, Universae Ecclesiae.

Sung Mass
Sung Mass
The Missa Cantata is an exception. As referred to above, the Solemn Mass is the norm. The Missa Cantata was and remains a substitute as a Solemn Mass is not always possible and a Read Mass is not the ideal for the LORD's Day. The Sung Mass is without a deacon or subdeacon and the same musical rubrics apply as the Solemn Mass. Until 1962, incense was only used at a Solemn Mass but now is optional in a Sung Mass and often depends on the number of Servers. If there are sufficient, then even Torchbearers can be used during the Canon. In a Missa Cantata, all parts must be sung, Proper, Ordinary, Lesson, Epistle, Gospel and Responses.

Read Mass  
Read Mass with one Server
Often referred to by the unfortunate term "Low Mass," generally speaking, no music is permitted in a Read Mass and no incense is used except at the prescribed part of a Requiem and one Server is all that is required. As confirmed in Universae Ecclesiae 26, the Lessons, Epistle and Gospel may be read aloud in the vernacular without first reading them in Latin, but only, in a Read Mass. In a Sung or Solemn Mass, Latin is required and they must be sung. One server, one only. Two can be tolerated by indult. No more are permitted and no incense is to be used, (other than the commendation prayers in the presence of the body of the deceased at a Read Requiem.

Read Mass with Music
In 1958, the Sacred Congregation of Rites allowed applied certain norms and discipline to the rubrics in response to varied styles of providing music from parish to parish. No Propers (Introit, Gradual, Alleluia, Tract, Sequence, Offertory or Communion) may be sung, the Gloria and Credo may not be sung. The Kyrie, Sanctus and Agnus Dei may be sung, if short. A hymn in Latin may be sung at the Entrance but must end before the Introit is recited. A motet or hymn may be sung at the Offertory and at Communion in Latin or in the vernacular, provided it has something to do with the liturgical action of each; gifts, offering and at Communion, the Eucharist or thanksgiving. A recessional hymn may be sung or the organ may be played at these parts. This is not to be confused with a Sung Mass or Missa Cantata as above and the Propers must be proclaimed audibly and must never be covered with music. The organ may be played at any parts but may not cover the said Propers.

Dialogue Mass
Solemn Requiem held during Lent
In 1923, 1947, 1958 and reaffirmed in 1962, the Holy See encouraged the Dialogue Mass and in the latter two years, applied four levels. These range from simple responses of "et cum spiritu tuo" to the Ordinary and all the responses of the Server, specifically the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar to even, believe it or not, the reciting of the Proper Antiphons with the priest; the latter being reserved from those communities and individual capable of doing so.

Requiem Mass
No organ is to be used at any Requiem Mass except to support the singing, if absolutely necessary. No prelude, no postlude, period!  A Requiem Mass' organ rules are the same as Lent and Advent, no organ solos. The Mass may be Read, Sung or Solemn in which case the norms above apply.

Rubrics are important. They keep us all on the same page and ensure that dignity and that we follow the Holy See's desires for Her liturgy. To quote from Universae Ecclesiae 24; "The liturgical books of the forma extraordinaria are to used as they are. All those who wish to celebrate according to the forma extraordinaria of the Roman Rite must know the pertinent rubrics and are obliged to follow them correctly." We must humble ourselves to the rubrics and not go our own way. Mixing the rubrics is not anticipated by the Church. Holy Mother Church gives us the guide, it is our duty to follow.

Let us all be educated in these important matters to serve loyally and faithfully. Let us not make the mistakes either out of ignorance or intent as so often found in the Ordinary Form; "I did it, my way." Let us also respect though, the established norms of existing communities of faithful and the customs to which they or their priests have maintained. The dialogue. for example, should not be forced on any individual, where it is not the custom; on the other hand, neither should anyone be chastised for engaging in it.

The Toronto Traditional Mass Society--UNA VOCE TORONTO will enthusiastically assist any priest or server or individual with gaining a greater understanding of the ars celebrandi of this venerable Rite. You may write us at unavocetoronto@gmail.com.

Our goal is $20,000, double that of last year's goal of $10,000 which we able to exceed, thanks to you.

It was so edifying to see the donations come in, even from as far away as Australia (Thank you Father!!!).

I know Joseph personally, his father and mother and his whole family. They are wonderful people and I personally attest to his faith and his dedication to his studies and seminary life.

Will you help us support Joseph?

There are two ways to donate.
