It’s true that the logic of “professional liturgists” isn’t universally appreciated. On account of this fact, liturgists have even merited their own corner on the joke circuit. Many are familiar with the gag that suggests liturgists and terrorists are equally unreasonable.
Dear Friends at Adoremus,
I just celebrated by birthday on July 15th. I was born in 1917 so I am now 100 years old. God has blessed me in so many ways. My mind is still as clear as can be. Thank you Jesus!
I love reading the Adoremus Bulletin. I received $50 as a gift so I want to give this to you in appreciation for sending me this marvelous paper every time you publish it.
I also pass it on to the pastor of the Cathedral here in St. Augustine.
God bless you all.

My dear Brother Bishops, with great trust and hope, I am consigning to you as Pastors the text of a new Apostolic Letter “Motu Proprio data” on the use of the Roman liturgy prior to the reform of 1970. The document is the fruit of much reflection, numerous consultations and prayer.
