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.

30. Utrum sacerdos possit stolam omittere e sacris vestibus induendis?

Resp.: Negative. Quaestio ponitur ex interpretatione eorum quae habentur in n. 299 Institutionis generalis Missalis romani. Nam quae dicuntur in praedicto numero: « Sacerdotis celebrantis vestis propria, in Missa aliisque sacris actionibus ... est planeta seu casula ... », intelligenda sunt ad normam nn. 81 et 302, ubi clare apparet stolam constituere sacerdotale indumentum numquam derelinquendum in Missa aliisque sacris actionibus quae cum Missa directo conectuntur.

È pervenuto, da più parti e da vari luoghi, a questa Congregazione per il Culto Divino e la Disciplina dei Sacramenti il seguente quesito:

« È lecito portare, da parte dei Vescovi, la croce pettorale anche sopra la casula o la pianeta? ».

Risposta: AFFERMATIVA.

L’uso di portare la croce pettorale sopra la casula durante le celebrazioni eucaristiche da parte dei Vescovi, pur essendo una peculiare caratteristica del rito ambrosiano e delle liturgie orientali, in questi ultimi anni è invalso molto diffusamente anche nella liturgia romana.

Inoltre è sembrato opportuno e significativo che il Vescovo, sia quando celebra da solo e sia quando presiede una concelebrazione, possa avere un segno che lo distingua dai presbiteri. Pertanto questo Dicastero, in aggiunta a quanto prescritto, stabilisce, de consensu Superiorum, che la croce possa essere portata anche sopra la casula, rimanendo libera la possibilità, a scelta del Vescovo, di portarla sotto di essa.

The following question has come to this Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments from many parts and places:

“Is it licit, on the part of Bishops, to wear the pectoral cross also over the Gothic or Roman chasuble?”

Response: Affirmative.

The practice of wearing the pectoral cross over the chasuble on the part of Bishops during Eucharistic celebrations, though being a peculiar characteristic of the Ambrosian rite and of Oriental liturgies, in recent years has also been widely accepted in the Roman liturgy.

Furthermore, it has seemed appropriate and significant for the Bishop, both when he celebrates alone and when he presides at a concelebration, to have a sign that distinguishes him from priests. As such this Dicastery, in addition to what is prescribed, establishes de consensu Superiorum that the cross may be also worn over the chasuble, the possibility remaining free to do so under it, at the Bishop’s discretion.
