WELCOME BACK, REV. DR. ORR!
This Sunday, after three weeks at hard labor back home in the balmy vineyards of sunny south Florida. (“Someone has to do it.”)
FASTING AND ABSTINENCE FOR LENT
Don’t forget that the traditional 40 days of Lenten fast and partial abstinence start with Ash Wednesday (February 10 this year) and include all the weekdays (but not the Sundays) of Lent.
Note: When fasting, only one full per day is permitted, plus two smaller meals which together add up to less than a full meal (with no eating between meals). Partial abstinence means meat at only one meal each day. (Full abstinence is required on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.)
GREGORIAN CHANT CLASS BEGINNING THIS SUNDAY
Beginning this Sunday (February 14) through the last Sunday before Pentecost, the Knoxville Latin Mass Schola will offer a chant class on Sundays following the 1:30 Mass in the parish hall at Holy Ghost Church. A 45-minute session in the choir loft, beginning 10 minutes after each Mass. For all those interested in learning to read and sing Gregorian Chant.
“HEAVEN IS PROTECTING US WITH THE TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS”
From a noteworthy statement (read more here) of what we all know well—that the traditional Latin Mass is key to the revitalization of faith and liturgy in the Church—by Father Juan Manuel Rodriguez de la Rosa:
The [traditional] Catholic liturgy expresses the faith of the Church . . . [For over a thousand years] the liturgy resisted the division and the particularization, because it represented the reality of the universality of the Church, unity of faith, dogmas, sacraments…
The Protestant Reformation led to a total fragmentation of the liturgy as a result of the division in faith. The [unchanging] Catholic liturgy maintained firmly the unity and universality, as an impregnable wall, which passed down the truth of the Catholic faith from generation to generation. . . . .This is the reason why everything in the Traditional Lain Mass is thorough, neat, careful, measured, controlled, planned, clean and beautiful; on the other hand there is no room for improvisation, or for anything that is vulgar, original, witty, boorish, ugly, irreverent, offensive or sensual.
The unassailable and impregnable wall of the Traditional Latin Mass is protecting us from heresy . . . but above all protects the Blessed Body and Precious Blood of Our Redeemer, as the scourge of heresy will never stop trying in vain to break down that wall that was built and sustained by God the Father Almighty.
Heaven is protecting us in every Traditional Latin Mass. The Eternal Father, the Lamb of God, the Divine Spirit, the Immaculate Conception, and the Heavenly Court, are looking after the Traditional Latin Mass from the moment it starts, and are witnessing with heavenly glory the development of the Sacrifice of the Agnus Dei. . . .
The future of the Church is in the Traditional Latin Mass, because it is the Truth of the Church and because it is the light that never goes out, illuminating the path of faith towards the heavenly fatherland.
