Hoc in situ interretiali ordinantur responsiones, explanationes, et decreta ex « Notitiae » aliisque interdum fontibus (ut AAS) desumpta, quae facilius aliis locis minime inveniuntur. Finis est praestare textum originalem, versionem anglicam, et exemplar PDF paginarum pertinentium ex « Notitiae » vel alio fonte. Presens igitur labor opusculum « Ordo Missae locis correspondentibus illustratus » aliquatenus extendit. Est enim labor imperfectus quem, cum operae mihi est, suscipio. Denique Reverendo domino Danieli Gill, domino Radosław Gosiewski, et domino Abram Córdova y Muenzberg, qui nonnullas ex responsionibus transcripserunt, gratias refero, item etiam domino Ioanni Oliveire dominaeque Cristae Mootz, qui in linguam anglicam responsiones quasdam verteri adiuvaverunt. Exemplaria PDF exstant etiam textuum nondum transcriptorum. This website organizes responses, explanations, and decrees from Notitiae and sometimes from other sources (such as AAS) that are not readily available in other places. The goal is to provide the original text, an English translation, and a PDF scan of the relevant pages from Notitiae or other source. In some ways, the project is a further development of my Cross-Referenced Ordo Missae. This is an ongoing prject which I work on in my spare time. I am also grateful for the help of Rev. Daniel Gill, Mr. Radosław Gosiewski, and Mr. Abram Córdova y Muenzberg in transcribing some of these responses and also to Mr. Johan Oliveire and Miss Crista Mootz for helping to translate certain responses into English. PDFs are available even for texts that have not yet been transcribed.

N.B. In « Notitiae » 1 (1965) et 2 (1966), supra responsa, invenitur monitio: Solutio quae proponitur nullam induit vestem officialem. Solummodo habet valorem orientativum: solutiones enim ex officio publici iuris fient, si casus fert, a competenti Auctoritate in « Acta Apostolicae Sedis ». N.B. In Notitiae 1 (1965) and 2 (1966), this notice appears above the responses: The solution which is proposed takes on no official character. It has only an orientative force; solutions will be published officially, if the case warrants, by the competent Authority in « Acta Apostolicae Sedis ».

43. Possunt Ordinarii religiosi vi art. 97 Constitutionis de sacra Liturgia et art. VII Motu Proprio « Sacram Liturgiam » in casibus singularibus et iusta de causa a recitatione Divini Officii dispensare etiam singulas communitates ex toto vel ex parte, aut commutare?

Resp.: Negative. Art. 97 Constitutionis est obvious: « in casibus singulariubs ». Nullo modo agitur de dispensandis communitatibus choro adstrictis. Ideo Motu Proprio « Pastorale munus » n. 24 concessit Episcopis facultatem reducendi obligationem choralem Capitulorum. Clare tandem excluditur talis interpretatio in Instructione diei 26 sept. 1964, n. 78, c, ubi pro regionibus Missionum peculiares conceduntur facultates, sed « salva disciplina chorali religiosa... iure statuta ».

43. Can religious Ordinaries, by virtue of art. 97 of the Constitution on the sacred Liturgy and art. VII of the Motu Proprio « Sacram Liturgiam » in individual cases and for a just cause dispense also individual communities from the recitation of the Divine Office, either in whole or in part, or commute it?

Resp.: In the negative. Art. 97 of the Constitution is obvious: « in individual cases ». In no way does it deal with dispensing communities bound to choir. Therefore the Motu Proprio « Pastorale munus » n. 24 granted to Bishops the faculty of reducing the choral obligation of Chapters. Clearly then such an interpretation is excluded in the Instruction of 26 sept. 1964, n. 78, c, where for Mission territories special faculties are granted, but « without prejudice to the choral discipline of religious... established by law ».
