The response from musicians all over the world was as spontaneous as it was varied.The most lasting success was enjoyed by the “Misa Criolla”, a work conceived by Ramirez as far back as 1963 that became popular all over the world following its first performance in Buenos Aires. It is a highly individual blend of musical inspiration, superb craftsmanship, deep religiosity and a profound knowledge of authentic South American folklore, all of which Ramirez has brought together to create a work that is a unique combination of folk and “classical” music - a musical mix that would be unthinkable for the central European musical tradition. It is therefore all the more surprising that the “Misa Criolla” went on to become such a success outside South America.On the 21st June 1990, two years after his sensational and much acclaimed return to the opera stage and concert platform, he once again sang the solo part in the “Misa Criolla” – this time at the Mission Dolores in San Francisco, founded in the 18th century by Spanish priest Pater Serra. On both occasions the composer himself, Ariel Ramirez, played the organ or piano part.As musical introduction to the performance of Ramirez’ “Misa Criolla” the recording starts with four songs by South American, Central American and Spanish composers, in which José Carreras is accompanied by Italian pianist Lorenzo Bavaj.

Agrupación XXIII de Marzo or XXIII de Marzo Group, was one of the Blackshirts units sent to Spain during the Spanish Civil War to make up the "Corpo Truppe Volontarie" (Corps of Volunteer Troops), or CTV.

The Vatican War on nuns exploded a few years ago. It had been a source of irritation to the Vatican Curia and to Pope Benedict. The nuns claim they were simply following the directives of Vatican II, the Church Council of the late shaped in the 1960s under the Popes John XXIII and Paul VI. That Council brought major changes to the Catholic Church, change the current Pope, Francis I has heartily endorsed. The powers in the Conservative Curia have sought to modify various aspects of the decrees of the Council. Many nuns, especially but not only American sisters have argued that they are being singled out for living up to the spirit and regulations of Vatican II. They say the conservative prelates wish to get the nuns out of contact with the world and confine them to the old convents. This book give a close look at the issues involved and current aspects of the situation, especially from the current pope and the movement toward a truce.
Canon of the Mass is the name given in the Roman Missal, from the first typical edition of Pope Pius V in 1570 to that of Pope John XXIII in 1962, to the part of the Mass of the Roman Rite that begins after the Sanctus with the words Te igitur. All editions preceding that of 1962 place the indication "Canon Missae" at the head of each page from that point until the end of the Mass, that of 1962 does so only until the page preceding the Pater Noster and places the heading "Ordo Missae" on the following pages.Before 1962 there were divergent opinions about the point where the Canon of the Mass ended. Some considered that it ended where indicated in the 1962 Roman Missal, others where indicated in the earlier editions from 1570 onwards, others at the conclusion of the Embolism that expands on the final "Sed libera nos a malo" petition of the Pater Noster.
Sedeprivationism is an ideological school or party of the traditionalist Roman Catholic movement that holds that Popes since John XXIII have been defective Popes, following the principles of the late French theologian Michel Louis Guérard des Lauriers, O.P., as Lauriers set it out in his thesis published in the Cahiers du Cassiciacum and therefore called the "Cassiciacum thesis". According to Laurier's thesis, Popes John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II and implicitly Benedict XVI were or are defective Popes in that, due to their supposed espousal of the "Modernist heresy", their consent to become Pope was faulty or defective, so that they became potentially Pope, but did not attain to the papacy.

Synopsis: The theological reflections of Virgilio Elizondo and Gustavo Gutiérrez are examples of the ecclesial fruitfulness of the second half of the twentieth century. Following the directives of Pope John XXIII and the Second Vatican Council, Elizondo and Gutiérrez present the Gospel message in relevant terms to their own people by engaging the world as the Church of the poor. Inspired by this moment in Church history, while at the same time recognizing the plight of their people in their poor and marginal existence, Elizondo and Gutiérrez discovered a new way of doing theology by asking a specific set of questions based on their local context. By investigating where God is present in the border crossers of the southwestern United States and the poorest of the poor in Latin America, both theologians have uncovered a hermeneutical lens in rereading Scripture and deepening our understanding of ecclesial tradition. Elizondo's mestizaje and Gutiérrez's preferential option for the poor arose out of a theology of context, a theological method that takes seriously the contextual circumstances of their locale. By utilizing the common loci theologici of Scripture and tradition in conjunction with context and their own experience, Elizondo and Gutiérrez illustrate through their theologies how every group must embrace their own unique theological reflection. Endorsements: 'Simon Kim has clearly delineated his goal of examining the importance of doing theology in context through a comparative analysis of the works of Gustavo Gutiérrez and Virgilio Elizondo. Then he masterfully achieves that goal through a careful exposition of the contexts, contents, intersections, and divergences of their respective theologies. . . . Gutiérrez is the founding figure of liberation theology in Latin America and arguably one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century, while Elizondo is the premiere US Latino theologian, whose influence also stretches to all continents around the globe. Fewer readers will note at first glance that Kim has produced the most comprehensive comparative analysis of these two leading theologians to date. Since many theologians and scholars from related fields tend to conflate the theologies of Latin Americans and those of US Latinas and Latinos, this comparative analysis alone makes Kim's book a valuable contribution to contemporary theological scholarship. 'Simon Kim brings out the value of the method Gutiérrez and Elizondo employed for doing theological reflection. He captures beautifully how his subjects' life experiences and pastoral leadership have deeply shaped their theological insights and . . . how those insights have shaped their pastoral vision and that of numerous others whom they have inspired.' --From the Foreword by Daniel G. Groody, CSC, and Timothy Matovina Author Biography: Simon Kim is a Korean American priest ordained for the Diocese of Orange, California.

Fifty years ago Pope John XXIII convened the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) of the Roman Catholic Church. One of the most heralded documents issued by the council was the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World (Gaudium et Spes). The theme of this book takes its inspiration from the following words of that document: And so mankind substitutes a dynamic and more evolutionary concept of nature for a static one and the result is an immense series of new problems calling for a new endeavor of analysis and synthesis. This book is a popular, non-academic theological 'endeavor of analysis and synthesis' of many of the teachings of the Church from the perspective of the scientific theory of evolution. It relies heavily on the achievement of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.
