Fr. Bernard-Marie de Chivre was a 20th century Dominican priest who spent time as a prior, spiritual director, and military chaplain. A friend of Archbishop Lefebvre, he preached retreats at Econe in the early days of the battle for Tradition. This book is a collection of his conferences given between 1968 and 1970 on the traditional Latin Mass. The writings of Fr. de Chivrí© are so profound that portions were used in our Roman Catholic Daily Missal. These profound and beautiful meditations will help you assist at Mass more fruitfully.
Essential reading for priests, seminarians, and all those within the religious life.
Aufer a Nobis: "Scarcely has he finished the prayers at the foot of the altar than the priest ascends toward the tabernacle,
drawn by his movement of confidence, saying very quietly the following short prayer: "Take away from us, O Lord, all of our
iniquities, that we might deserve to enter into the Holy of Holies with a pure mind."
Kyrie: "The Kyrie is a cry of nature, an echo of the sick and injured waiting patiently along the roadside in order to seize any
opportunity to appeal to Jesus' pity: "Lord, that I may see; that I may walk."
Gloria: "Very few people give a thought to the splendid content of the Gloria in Excelsis. It is so often sung with an
accent of routine which speaks volumes about the monotonous flatlands where we spend most of our time.
Those false accents betray a lack of purity of understanding, because there is no more longing for the mountain crests.
And yet, that is where God is: solely in the heights."
This is My Body: "If Christ had ended His Life with a mere symbol, He would have been lying to His extraordinary Power
manifested in all of His prior activities, after having affirmed Himself irresistible Power in all the kingdoms of creation:
(1) The Vegetable Kingdom: the multiplication of the loaves; (2) The Animal Kingdom: the multiplication of the fishes;
(3) The Mineral Kingdom: the silver coin found in the mouth of the fish; (4) The Absence of Kingdom: the horror of a bodily decomposition, Lazarus. He would have ended with a scam, the scam of a symbol which would have placed Him in contradiction with His own Power."
