Advent Sunday! And a new start! From today, the Ordinariate Missal is authorised in all three Ordinariates. The formal authorising document, signed by Cardinal Sarah (who is reported to have commented "Why can't we have something like this?"), makes clear that it is granted by virtue of faculties conferred on the CDW by the present Sovereign Pontiff the Holy Father Pope Francis. So, just as the post-Conciliar Missal is known as the Paul VI Missal, so, for the rest of time, this Missal will be the Pope Francis Missal! When everything else about Bergoglio is, sadly, completely forgotten, by this he will be remembered! Exegerit monumentum aere perennius!
Viva il Papa! Viva Francesco! Vivant omnes!

With the feast of Saint Edmund Campion approaching, I was wondering if anyone could tell me which Mass is used? One of the commons of Martyrs not Pontiffs ("In virtute tua Dñe lætabitur iustus" or "Lætabitur iustus in Dño") or is there a proper Mass? Thanks!
As of 1949, in Birmingham, it was called the Blessed Martyrs of Oxford University; in Northampton and Portsmouth, Blessed Edmund Campion and his Companions. In all three dioceses, the Mass Intret was used, and the (same) Collect including the words " ... beatos Edmundum et socios sacerdotes tuos ... ". The only difference was the 'Epistle'; Birmingham had Apocalypse 7:13-17; Northampton and Portsmouth had Hebrews 11:33-39. (Remainder from the Common.) Necessary updating seems to me to suggest, in view of the canonisations, that, at least intra Urbem (Oxoniam), it be II classis (dup.ma.?)and might be called Sancti et Beati Martyres Academiae Oxoniensis.
If you want guidance with regard to the Ordinariate Calendar, which features S Edmund on his own, the Missal indicates In virtute tua.
Give you joy of your new Missal!
Thank you, Father. I was particularly interested in what Mass would be used to celebrate S Edmund on his own, but the information about the usage in Birmingham, Northampton and Portsmouth is also most welcome!
Could we - who live far from the reach of the Ordinariates, in every sense - could we hope for an edition of this Missal for the faithful, for private use?
