This Monday’s Magnificat comes from St. Peter’s Basilica. It was sung for adoration during the time of sede vacante following Benedict XVI’s abdication. It was chanted to psalm tone II d.

Men, have you made your retreat this year yet? If you haven’t, the perfect opportunity is coming up tomorrow in Madison. There’s a full lineup of excellent speakers, including our own Bishop Robert Morlino. All the information is available at the link below.
I’m very excited myself for this retreat, and there are several things I’d love to point out to all of you about it.
First, all the liturgies will be celebrated ad orientem, including a Mass celebrated Bishop Robert Morlino. I’ll be assisting at all the liturgies to make them as beautiful as possible, and you’re sure to see lots of continuity and liturgical beauty,
Second, I’m really looking forward to both of Fr. Zuhlsdorf’s talks, as well as a talk by The Extraordinary Ordinary™ (Bishop Robert Morlino).
Fr. Z’s first talk is entitled “Active Participation: a matter of life and death,” which will be taking a Catholic buzz-word, “active participation,” and breaking down what it actually means. this will be surely informative for all. I’m really looking forward to see what he’ll say in his second talk, “Spiritual Communion: an option.” This is something I have been considering and praying about lately on my own, so I’m very interested to see what he will say about the topic.
Bishop Morlino will be giving the final talk on the Beauty of Lent, in which I’m sure he will focus on the good the true, and the beautiful, which he often talks about. Also very excited about it, though I will not hear much, as I will be busy preparing for Mass in my sacristan and Master of Ceremony duties. I will look forward to listening to a recording later.
Lastly, there will be multiple public celebrations of the Divine Office, and they will be chanted in their entirety. Again, it’s fantastic to see the requests of Vatican II lived out asking that the divine office be celebrated publicly and with the faithful, and also that the scriptures be more fully opened up to the faithful, which the Office does so beautifully.
All in all, it will prove to be a great retreat, I’m sure, and I’d highly encourage any gentlemen in the area to attend if you are able. It begins tomorrow evening (Friday, March 7) at 7pm, with an optional Mass and dinner at 5:30.

Please keep the people in Kiev, Ukraine, particularly the Christians there. From what I could find, almost 100 have died so far. As I see more and more pictures of the eastern-rite priests trying to protect the people and lead them in prayer, I am constantly amazed by their bravery and devotion. Pray in a special way for these priests. These image are just so striking to me.
