  • Another questionable act of Pius XII, instituting this feast on Communist “May Day” (the high holy day of communists).

    He sought to speak highly of labor, to win their sympathies.

    Today, the breviary speaks of labor being sanctified (not of us sanctifying our labors, but as though labor already  possessed this intrinsic quality):

    Labor is holy?

    That would be a very grave error.
    Labor is sanctified when we sanctify our work. The Holy Father was on a mission to convert the Communists by offering them the holiness and example of St. Joseph.

  • An example of why instituting a feast exalting the "dignity" of labor might be imprudent: Dorothy day conflating communism and Catholicism:

    His holiness was also working on her conversion too.

  • From an article by Fr. Cekada: http://www.traditionalmass.org/articles/article.php?id=37&catname=6

    [Because of the confusing format and use of quotation marks, it is not clear to me whether he is citing Fr. Didier Bonneterre SSPX, author of Liturgical Revolution, or Jean Crete]:

    "The Sacred Congregation of Rites was not favorable toward this decree, the work of a special commission. When, five weeks later, Pius XII announced the feast of St. Joseph the Worker (which caused the ancient feast of Ss. Philip and James to be transferred, and which replaced the Solemnity of St Joseph, Patron of the Church), there was open opposition to it.

    “For more than a year the Sacred Congregation of Rites refused to compose the office and Mass for the new feast. Many interventions of the pope were necessary before the Congregation of Rites agreed, against their will, to publish the office in 1956 — an office so badly composed that one might suspect it had been deliberately sabotaged. And it was only in 1960 that the melodies of the Mass and office were composed — melodies based on models of the worst taste.

    "We relate this little-known episode to give an idea of the violence of the reaction to the first liturgical reforms of Pius XII".
    This says more about how the Sacred Congregation did not serve the Church than Pope Pius XII. We have many feast which honor the Blessed Virgin. One additional feast to honor her spouse offers no threat to the calendar. What is does do is to honor the holiness of the foster father of Jesus.

  • All very interesting, however, I go to mass today because it is a Feast of St. Joseph, I do not go because it is a Catholic "labor" or "May day" , anyone that goes for that is blind.

    Man is not dignified by his work, he is dignified only because of God's Grace. Man has created nothing of his own but sin.
    I love St Joseph also.

  • Isn't this essentially the ideology Jose Maria Escriva and Opus Dei?
    This is also the ideology of monasticism. To sanctify what you do is to offer what you do, everything that you do, to the Father in reparation for the sins of the whole world.

    Sanctification of work is not under discussion, but labor already being intrinsically sanctified.

    What a moron.  Yes, if only Bugnini had even more of a green light, it would evince a better "service to the Church."
    It would be nice if you would stick to telling us what you eat on Friday for the next 15 years.

  • From the Mailbag:


    Quote
    You might advise Zeusantony that the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker was established on May 1 by Pope Pius XII in 1955, replacing the Solemnity of St. Joseph the Spouse of the Virgin Mary on March 19.
    March 21 is the feast of Saint Benedict in both the 1962 Missal and its predecessor. Well, we all make mistakes now and then.

    In caritate,
    J.A. McFarland

    For once, I not only agree with Mr. McFarland, but I am going so far as to post his words here.
    Truth is truth, regardless of the source.
