100th. Anniversary of Divino Afflatu

The Confraternity of St. Benedict calls the readers’ attention to the discussion going on over at Rorate Caeli concerning the 100th. Anniversay of St. Pius X’s monumental liturgical reforms commissioned under Divino Afflatu. Divino Afflatu was and continues to be a significant piece of liturgical history and legislation especially for those of us who pray the Divine Office according to any Roman edition dated 1911-1968. Rorate also has an excellent and informative article written by Fr. Anthony Cekada (the CSB does not endorse his sedevacantist views but admires his love for the Divine Office and his seemingly endless knowledge of matters liturgical).

    How does one join the SBC?

    You are welcome to join us as an individual, or you may be interested to start a sister chapter in your parish. We would need your name, city/state/country, and e-mail address. If you are interested in starting a sister chapter, it would be advisable to have your own website to post updates and such, and we would gladly link your site to ours here. As a sister chapter, you are free to adopt whichever version of the Divine Office is suitable for your group.

    To date, we still only have one chapter which is based at Mater Ecclesiae Mission in Berlin, NJ, so all announcements here pertain to the services offered at Mater Ecclesiae. At Mater Ecclesiae, our chapter follows the 1962 Breviarium Romanum for public use while the individual members may recite other versions of the Office privately.

    God bless you and a holy Advent season,

    John Rotondi, CSB Facilitator

    Father Charlesworth
