It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Motu Proprio Reflection

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: What's in a name? That's the motu proprio reflection over at the Rorate Caeli blog today. Just a little background: The pope's much anticipated motu proprio liberalizing the Tridentine mass is expected to be made public this week. Speculations run high for this Saturday. The document itself allegedly offers a new linguistic paradigm in reference to the two masses offered by the Catholic Church. From hence forth, the 'Mass of Pope Paul VI' (or "Novus Ordo"), which is most commonly celebrated today, will be called the "Ordinary Mass." While the 'Mass of St. Pius V' (or "Tridentine") will be called the "Extraordinary Mass." So what's in a name? That's the gist behind this post on Rorate Caeli. Here's a sneak peek...
