DECODING THE LATIN MASS SUCCESSFUL EVENT! More than 35 people learned the deep history and significance of the Latin Mass from Mr. Thomas Gilmour, Master of Ceremonies at St. Anthony’s Oratory of Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in West Orange. They then gathered outside on a lovely summer Saturday afternoon for a lively question and answer session. Mr. Gilmour suggested the following resources for continued learning:
*Do a search on YouTube for an hour long video of a 1940s era Mass narrated by Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. Archbishop Sheen also wrote “The Seven Last Words,” correlating Christ’s last words on the Cross to the prayers of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Also search for F.S.S.P. Latin Mass training videos to follow every step of the Mass that you can – and cannot – see from the pews.
*A Web site by the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago: http://www.sanctamissa.org/en/

ITE MISSA EST: WILL YOU HELP GROW INTEREST IN THE LATIN MASS and THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?: Go, you are sent forth on a mission! We have to be like St. Philip calling St. Bartholomew in the first chapter of John’s Gospel – “I have found the Messiah, COME AND SEE!” So many do not know the Catholic Faith… or have been misinformed about it….or perhaps they think they have heard everything there is to know about it. In any case, they miss out on the graces our Lord wants to give them! Please take a look at Msgr. Charles Pope’s article, the Latin Liturgy Association video “How Metro. Detroit Became a Center for Latin Liturgy”, St. John Cantius of Chicago’s video “Restoring the Sacred”, and St. Paul Evangelization web site. Each offer ideas on growing the Church and Latin Mass in particular. PLEASE WRITE ME BACK and let me know if you’re interested in evangelizing, restoring the sacred and growing our parishes – ultimately, in saving souls for Christ.

ITE MISSA EST: WILL YOU HELP GROW INTEREST IN THE LATIN MASS and THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?: Ite, missa est – Go, you are sent forth on a mission! We have to be like St. Philip calling St. Bartholomew in the first chapter of John’s Gospel – “I have found the Messiah, COME AND SEE!” So many do not know the Catholic Faith… or have been misinformed about it….or perhaps they think they have heard everything there is to know about it. In any case, they miss out on the graces our Lord wants to give them! Please take a look at Msgr. Charles Pope’s article, the Latin Liturgy Association video “How Metro. Detroit Became a Center for Latin Liturgy”, St. John Cantius of Chicago’s video “Restoring the Sacred”, and St. Paul Evangelization web site. Each offer ideas on growing the Church and Latin Mass in particular. PLEASE WRITE ME BACK and let me know if you’re interested in evangelizing, restoring the sacred and growing our parishes – ultimately, in saving souls for Christ.

DO YOU KNOW? That some amazing Catholic novels were written for young people in years past, and are now in reprint? Our family is currently reading “All The Swords in England,” a story of St. Thomas Becket by Barbara Willard. Last year, we read her “Augustine Came to Kent,” a novel about St. Augustine of Canterbury (He will never again be confused with St. Augustine of Hippo, son of St. Monica, protege of St. Ambrose and author of Confessions, once you have read this book!)
I just wanted to share some great reading that the whole family can enjoy together. Enjoy!

DO YOU KNOW: THE CONVERT WHO CALLED THE LATIN MASS “THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN?” This convert was even ordained a vicar for the Church of England (Anglican). This was after hearing the preaching of fellow Anglican John Henry Newman, who famously converted to Catholicism in 1843. Our convert followed Newman’s lead in 1845, but not before writing poetry and befriending poet William Wordsworth. In 1849, he again followed Newman’s lead and founded an Oratory of St. Philip Neri, which despite numerous protests, eventually found a home in the Brompton area of London. As a Catholic priest, he composed many hymns, including most famously, “Faith of Our Fathers.” Prompted by his great devotion to the Blessed Mother, he translated St. Louis de Montfort‘s classic work, True Devotion to Mary, into English. Never in good health, he died of kidney disease at age 49 in 1863. His name? Father Frederick William Faber. (As an interesting aside, there is an Oratory of St. Philip Neri in New Brunswick at St. Peter’s Church. http://www.nboratory.org/)
