Your articles are very inspiring and helpful to myself and family and friends.
I love Regina magqazine and am delighted with it. For this reason, I would like to point out some errors that have appeared on your latest issue on Spain, which I imagine you can easily correct since this is an online publication:
on page 136, the portrait is not that of Isabella, but of Catherine of Aragon,,,
page 303 has the wrong dates (1095-1175) for a woman who lived in the 20th century
I lived in Zaragoza, Span, from 1984 to 1989. That town has an important parish, Santa Engracia, which has in its crypt Roman carved tombstones for the early martyrs, and keeps the relics of Saint Engracia, who was horribly martyred there, under Dacian I believe. Because this parish has the relics of this saint and of the “innumerable martyrs” (uncounted saints, all massacred and burned dust to prevent the gathering of relics – which didn’t succeed), the parish church was granted in the early 1990’s the right and the duty to perform the Mozarabic rite on two or three feasts of the year, in this ancient Roman and Mozarabic town. The town itself also has the tomb of St Braulio, who was bishop of Zaragoza and a contemporary of St Isidore of Seville, who himself was a most important figure of the early Spanish Church, and the last Father of the Church in the West.
In 2005 I wrote a very long essay on the Mozarabic rite, as part of my degree in Divinity at a good, orthodox Catholic Insitute in England. You might find it interesting, and I would like to send you a copy by email, if you could tell me how I can do that. I could give you my email address if you want, provided it is not made public.
I wonder why you only report on people, places and events associated with the E.R.Latin Mass. There are many places where the N.O. liturgy is done with respect, poise and care, without the celebrant taking liberties (though I personally would like it much more if the celbrant were to celebrate “ad orientem”). Should not these places, events and people, that are totaly orthodox in their Catholic beliefs, be encouraged and praised too? I would like your opinion on this. Or are you simply a side-shoot of an organisation like the Latin Mass Society?
Thank you for your lovely, fascinating and loyally Catholic magazine. It is most encouraging to read it.
Very best wishes,
Anne Harriss, o.c.d.s.
