Today's Fortune(6)

When you fall in love with the shapeshifter, you meet her at the crossroads, full moon at midnight, and you hold her. No matter what she becomes. Fire, snake, hateful killer, snarling horse, wild beast. Pilot. Murderous, schizophrenic mother's daughter. Treacherous, disappearing soldier's lover. Hands around your throat; hands around your heart. Even when it's killing you. Even when she's Harvey's lovely daughter, all in a coldsuit, hair gone long and straight and black as night, lover and enemy in one, you hold her. You hold her, because it's your love that draws her back; your love that's the star by which she steers herself home. And she'll do the same for you, because you're a shapeshifter too. -- Jacob's Farscape Recap of DNA Mad Scientist

Latin Mass Propers

I've added a page containing many Latin Mass propers to the St. Rose web site, so I thought I'd link to it here as well.

I've been making the propers for St. Rose since it opened, so I've gradually accumulated a decent collection that covers all the Sundays, Holy Days, and some other feasts. (A "proper" is the prayers and readings in the Mass that change from day to day.) Haven't needed to do a new one in a while. When I made them, I was often able to find samples online that I could cut-and-paste from, but sometimes they were scans that were full of typos, sometimes I'd have to get the Latin from one place and the English from another, and in a few cases I couldn't find one and had to type it from scratch. So I thought it might be helpful to put them online for others who are in the same boat I was.

The English translations should be the same as the ones in the Baronius 1962 missal. I think I've proofread them all pretty well in both languages, but I'm sure there are still a few typos, so please let me know if you spot any.

I'm putting them on the St. Rose site instead of this personal one, since that seems like where they belong. There are instructions on the page with them, but in short: download the PDF if you just want to print it, but it will say "Saint Rose Latin Mass Proper" at the top. If you want to edit it or use it in your own materials, download the DOC or ODT version, which you can edit in Open Office or Libre Office, or possibly Microsoft Office (I'm not sure whether MS Office does ODT). Consider them public domain, and use the files or the text in them however it can help you.
